Key dates

  • Entries open: October 14, 2021
  • Extended entry deadline: January 14, 2022
  • Judging week: w/c January 26, 2022
  • The Annual is published: May/June


Work entered into the Annual 2022 must have been produced or first published/launched between January 1 to December 31 2021 to be eligible for entry. We welcome all forms of entrants, whether you are a brand, agency, publisher, consultancy, student or individual.

The exception to this is for entries to the Creative Effectiveness award category, where we can accept work that has been created between June 2019 and June 2021 (so there is at least six months since the launch of a project to accurately track its effectiveness). Campaigns or projects that began before June 2019 can be entered so long as a new element to them has been released during the entry period.


Our judges will be looking for outstanding work to select for publication in the Annual 2022. They will be considering the following when it comes to judging entries:

  • Does it innovate?
  • Is it powerful?
  • Is it appropriate?
  • Does it achieve its objectives?
  • It is original?
  • Is it beautiful?
  • Is it effective?

Entry costs

The Creative Review Annual is an awards scheme and in common with the majority of 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. Each year we compare our entry fees to others in the creative industry to ensure that we set our fees at a reasonable level.

Standard: £285+VAT per entry
Small organisations: £175+VAT per entry

Extended entry deadline: January 14, 2022
