Cresta International Advertising Awards

A Cresta Award is one of the world’s most prestigious creative accolades. Our annual online festival attracts work from over 70 countries, and from many of the global industry’s most respected creative companies. Entries cover a wide range of skills; from the very latest digital and technology-based creative communications to more traditional areas in advertising and design. Each year a carefully chosen world-class jury of more than 120 senior industry leaders votes independently online to establish benchmarks for global creative standards. From these individual assessments we establish the absolute levels of creativity required to win one of our coveted trophies – a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Grand Prix Cresta.

General Eligibility/Rules:

  1. Any client, creative agency, digital agency, design company, production company, post-production company, or individual professional may enter.

  2. Where the work is a collaborative effort by more than one agency in a network, this can be acknowledged in the credits. Or, if more than one agency wishes to enter the item and have their name as the entrant, they must enter separately and each pay the appropriate fee.

  3. If more than one company enters a piece of work and that work goes on to be shortlisted or win an award, all entrants will be equally credited and featured in any publicity.
