Agency of the Year 2021 opens for entries

Campaign Asia-Pacific's 2021 Agency of the Year awards programme is now open for entries.

Since the early 1990s, Campaign’s Agency of the Year awards have recognised inspiring leadership, management excellence, outstanding business performance, and overall achievements in advertising and brand communications.

Campaign's AOY is the only programme to honour agency excellence at both local and regional levels. The programme includes awards for five regions within APAC—Australia and New Zealand, Greater China, Japan and Korea, South Asia and Southeast Asia—as well as the APAC Network of the Year Awards.

The judging panel consists exclusively of leading client marketers across Asia-Pacific. In the first round of judging, judges review and score entries independently. The scores are sent directly to PwC Singapore to verify the shortlist. The jury then meets to discuss shortlisted entries in both the people and agency categories.

Key dates

  • Early-bird entry deadline: August 12
  • Entry deadline: September 16
  • Late entry deadline: September 30
  • Shortlist release: November 11

Cutoff time for all deadlines is 6 pm HK time (UCT/GMT +8).
