The Drum Creative Awards relaunch with judges from AKQA and the Studio of Art and Commerce

The Drum Creative Awards (formerly The DREAM Awards) are ready to launch with a stellar new look, a panel of skilled specialists and a whole host of new categories.

Celebrating stellar creativity, the awards strive to give the industry a platform to shine. These flagship awards are open to entries from across the globe and to anyone who is producing great creative work worthy of being noticed.

Currently on this year’s panel of industry experts are: Nicky Bullard, chairman and chief creative officer, MRM Meteorite; Flo Heiss, CREATIVE, Studio of Art and Commerce and Wayne Deakin, executive creative director, AKQA, with more to be announced soon.

Deakin said: “The awards are a truly multi discipline show. It's exciting to be part of that and celebrate creativity across many disciplines, areas and crafts.”

On what he expects from the entrants this year, Heiss said: "I am looking for work that is as artistic as possible and at the same time unashamedly commercial."

Previous judges on a panel of industry experts include: Coca Cola’s Guy Duncan, BMB’s Trevor Beattie, BBC Creatives’ Laurent Simon, TBWA London’s Peter Souter and TMW’s Graeme Noble.

Get your entries in by Wednesday 20 September if you think you have what it takes to bring home awards like: creative women of the year (in partnership with Creative Equals), experiential, identity, integrated campaign, film; commercial, online and short film and social strategy and many more.

Sponsors for this year’s event are: The Drum Network, The Drum RAR and TINT.
