How can I make payment?
There are three ways to pay: credit/debit card, cheque or bank transfer.
These payments can be made online at the time of entry. In addition to your entry confirmation email containing your submission details, you will receive a second email confirming payment; this should be retained as your VAT receipt. No other receipt will be issued.
After submitting your entry/ies all entrants receive an automated email confirmation from the website, containing full details of your submission and instructions for paying via bank transfer or cheque.
Unfortunately we are not able to invoice for entries, however, you will find a pro-forma invoice included in the email confirmation received upon submission of your entries. VAT receipts for bank transfers or cheque payments will be posted to the entrant upon receipt of payment.
Multiple entries can be paid for by one credit/debit card, cheque or bank transfer.
IMPORTANT - By submitting your entry/ies you confirm that you have read and agree with the Rules of Entry.
Why do I have to pay to enter?
The Creative Review Annual is an awards scheme. In common with virtually all other creative industry awards schemes around the world, there is a fee to enter. We charge this fee because running and producing The Annual involves considerable costs to Creative Review in administration, production, paper, printing and so on. Unfortunately these costs cannot be offset by sponsorship. Each year we compare our entry fees to others in the creative industry to ensure that we set our fees at a comparable level. In fact, fees to The Annual are amongst the lowest in the industry.
When entries are submitted on behalf of clients by agencies or other parties, Creative Review will assume client approval has been secured by the entering agency. If any issues arise concerning client sign-off once the entry has been submitted, no refund will be given.
