It’s about time we had a different kind of creative award. And The Creative Shootout is just that. Think Bake Off meets Dragon’s Den meets the creative industry. With a bit of X Factor thrown in. But done in a day, for charity. It really does all add up.

From 1st October to 30th November 2018, any marketing agency (Advertising, PR, Content, Digital, Experiential, Integrated, Media – or other) can enter, with the Creative Shootout supported by the major associations including the IPA, CIPR, IAB UK and CMA.

Our uber-stellar Judging Panel will then read, watch and digest (well, entries can be literally anything) all 60 second entries to decide which eight agency teams should go through to the Live Final of The Creative Shootout 2019 at BAFTA on 24th January 2019.

On the day, the eight finalist agency teams will receive a real brief from our Cause of the Year, A Plastic Planet. Four hours later, they’ll be pushed out on to the famous stage and given ten minutes to convince our live audience and Judges that they’ve got the most creative idea for the cause. Best idea on the day wins. Previous winners include PR agency Mischief from The Engine Group (twice) and digital agency, RAW London.

The winning agency will then get to work with A Plastic Planet in 2019, turbo charged by our brilliant media, content and broadcast partners.

For a chance to be crowned the UK’s most creative marketing agency, enter here in 60 seconds and show us why you’ve got the creative clout that can cure us of our plastic addiction.
