They’re part of a team of 81 AUNZ creatives who will identify the winners and placegetters, with online pre-judging to determine finalists taking place from 11 March to 25 March and virtual judging to nominate winners from 2-10 May.

“Despite the challenges thrown our way, we’ve seen entry levels exceed recent records.”

“This will no doubt be another remarkable year for Australia’s creative community. Despite the challenges thrown our way, we’ve seen entry levels exceed recent records.

“That points to a real buoyancy in the industry and a determination to flex creative muscles in tough times. We look forward to seeing how ideas conceived in 2021 have solved a diverse array of business challenges.”
