NEW! 2021 Effie Awards UK Now Open For Entries
The past year has, without a doubt, been a challenging and transformational time, testing us all as individuals, as a society and as an industry. We’ve collectively faced many difficult decisions and overcome challenges, and there is much to recognise, celebrate and learn from those who have done so effectively.
The Effie Awards are a globally recognised symbol of outstanding achievement. We are proud to honour all types of effective marketing and the people who make it.
The first deadline will be 7th May and the second is 18th June, so you have more time than usual to prepare your entries. See the full 2021 calendar here.
2021 New Categories
To better represent the marketing and business challenges that you’ve been overcoming, we’ve added a mix of new categories that expand our focus to business ideas, performance marketing and technology companies, and go more in depth on effective digital strategy. A full list of categories can be seen here.
