Check your eligibility dates

Is your work eligible for eurobest 2018?

To be eligible for all eurobest Awards (except Creative Effectiveness) your work must have aired, launched or been released to the public for the first time between 1 September 2017 and 31 October 2018. To ensure that work judged at eurobest is fresh and reflective of the good ideas that drive the industry forward it is important we structure the competition with eligibility dates.

We understand that some campaigns span several years, in these cases you will need to demonstrate a significant evolution in order to be considered.

Eligibility for Creative Effectiveness
To be eligible your work must have won or been shortlisted at eurobest 2015, 2016 or 2017.

  • The same piece of work cannot be submitted into the same eurobest Award in consecutive years. However, providing the eligibility dates are met, you may enter the work into an alternative eurobest Award.

  • A minimum of two thirds of the campaign implementation must fall within these dates.

  • If you’re entering a campaign that has run over 2 or more years, you will need to provide proof of the campaign’s evolution from year to year. The Festival has the right to decide if the entry has evolved sufficiently and can be deemed as a new, eligible entry.

  • If entering a ‘Campaign of Executions’ then the whole campaign must fall within the eligibility dates.

  • If you are showcasing a continuation of a campaign that aired before the eligibility period then you must clearly show how the campaign has progressed.
