CR Annual 2016: call for entries

Creative Review’s next Annual, our showcase of the best work of the year, is now open for entries. Selected work will be published in a special double issue of CR in May, as well as on a dedicated section of our site – so your work can be seen by peers, potential clients and the wider creative community.

The Annual is our major awards scheme and aims to showcase the best in visual communications from the past year (cover of this year’s edition, shown above). We’ve just launched a dedicated website for the 2016 edition at

Each year, our judging panel of industry experts chooses work that they feel represents the best of the year across all aspects of advertising, design and visual communications.

Previously, we’ve displayed selected work according to the month in which it was first launched. However, this has always proved confusing to entrants, particularly for those used to a category-based system, so we’re trying something new – this year, work should be submitted under one or more of the discipline or mediums in our category list on the Annual site.

If you’d like to enter – you can start the process here.

Projects selected for the Annual will be then displayed by category. (If a project is entered into, and displays excellence in, more than one category it will be recognised as such).


Shown here is some of the work from last year which was selected for the coveted Best in Book section.

If you’d like to enter the 2016 Annual, all the details you need are at Best of luck.
