The Roses Design Awards and the Roses Advertising Awards are to be merged to form a new award, the Roses Creative Awards.

The Roses Creative Awards are now open for entry, integrating the two ceremonies, to reward creative advertising and design within the regions of the UK outside of M25.

An experienced judging panel of creative advertisers and designers will be assembled to judge the entries, with a deadline set for Friday 10 February.

Gordon Young, editor of The Drum, explained: “They have been brought together to reflect how the industry itself is evolving. There is no doubt the demarcation lines between what were once quite separate disciplines are becoming less pronounced.

“Advertising agencies now work across the creative spectrum as do design consultancies. Clients too also no longer view the world through the prism of how the marketing services world is structured. They simply want solutions to their problems, great ideas that can work across the board, whether it means advertising, design, digital, experiential or a combination of the lot.

“That is what the Roses Creative Awards sets out to recognise great creative thinking, pure and simple,” he added.

An early bird entry rate of a 20% discount is on offer for those who submit their entries before 22 December however.

For more information on the Roses Creative Awards see the newly launched website, or contact Lyndsay Wilson on lyndsay.wilson@carnyx.com.

It makes sense to put them together and will mean very popular and well contested awards.

IT will be interesting to see how this affects the landscape of winners.

Thanks Nick. I suspect we will get the odd surprise, like businesses who, for example, operate in the design sector suddenly doing very well in the advertiisng categories. Different types of agencies will emerge as well. It was interesting, for example, that in this year's Scottish Creative Awards, a business specialising in CGI and animation - Axis - won the Grand Prix.
