AWARD OUTLAWS BLOOD MAGAZINE AS ENTRY DEADLINE LOOMS

As was the case with Axis in New Zealand, ads which have only appeared in Blood Magazine will not be eligible for entry into AWARD.
The Call for Entry website will close on Friday 11th August at 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
Manual entries will be accepted until 18th August.

What a pity. The one thing AWARD needs is more scams.

That billboard was there in the late 80's when it was supposed to be the way Paul Arden could see if his billboards looked good from his office.

I hear in London they have a system to stop all the scams.
Campaign press and poster awards have a rule.
Minimum media spend 100,000 pounds.
Cannes and award should all do that.

10:47 - so does that mean that only agencies with big clients who can spend a shit load on media will be able to enter awards? Watch the amount of entries drop big time. Cannes would never do it anyway because they're all about making money.

What about ads that have only appeared in Campaign Brief? If they excluded those then Saatchis would be able to save thousands of dollars.

Hundred grand on media? Come on! My little boy Nobby spent about $65k just entering Cannes this year.

Blood magazine is a collection of all the best ideas in print, not all of which are ads. It was edited by Andy Blood CD of Whybin TBWA in Auckland. Most of the work ran but some did not.

i think you'll find that most of the work didn't run, but some did.
