Scottish Creative Awards offers latecomers a reprieve with final call for entry
The Scottish Creative Awards has announced a final call for entries allowing those who missed the entry deadline the chance to get involved with the prime creative awards for Scotland.
Celebrating the achievements of Scotland’s creative sector and marketing elite the awards, which are sponsored by the Chesterfield Group, are open to digital, design, PR and advertising agencies.
Awards up for grabs include Press Campaign, Best Ad on a Mobile Medium, Best Use of Visual Design, Advertising Strategy, PR Strategy/Stunt and many more.
Judging this year’s event will be OgilvyOne’s Rick Sear; Coley Porter Bell creative director, Stuart Humm; creative director at BigDog Agency Tim Jarvis; Rapp executive creative director Jason Andrews; Toby Edwards of Rose and Giles Claver, Sedley Place planning director.
Past Scottish Creative Award winners include Studio Stand, Whitespace and Various Creative to name but a few. Winners of last year’s Grand Prix Axis Animation told The Drum winning at the Scottish Creative Awards had been a “real honour,” adding, “we can’t wait to see the selection of creative work nominated in 2015".
2014 Chairman’s Award winner The Union also said it was “delighted” to have picked up a Scottish Creative Award for its Project Scotland radio campaign, offering advice to those looking to enter radio ads: “Some might deem radio an unfashionable channel these days, throw in a bit of cheek and irreverence and ears will soon prick up.”
Judging is set to take place later this month with the award winners announced at a black tie event at Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel on Thursday 8 October. To view the full list of categories, find out how to enter and more visit the Scottish Creative Awards site.
