CR Annual 2016: Deadline Extended

If you have not yet managed to send us your entries for the Creative Review Annual 2016, fear not. The deadline has been extended until January 29

Each year, our Annual aims to showcase the best creative projects from around the world – from brand identities to apps, ads, music videos, idents and brilliant social media campaigns.

Last year’s Best in Book winners include DesignStudio’s Airbnb rebrand, a new website for Pelican Books by Penguin and Fiasco Design, AKQA’s House of Mamba for Nike, ManvsMachine’s idents for Film4 and US directing duo Daniels’ bonkers video for DJ Snake & Lil John track, Turn Down for What.

Selected work is featured in our printed Annual, which shares a spine with our May issue, and will also be featured in an online showcase.

We’re also making some changes to the Annual this year.

Instead of displaying projects according to the month in which they were launched, we’ll be showcasing work by category. If work displays excellence in more than one category – for example, an ad with a great social media campaign – this will be recognised. You can find a full list of categories here.

Entries close on January 29.
