Advertising, Eurobest

Eurobest announced it is now open for entries, with deadline set for September 21st. The festival, to take place in Lisbon on November 28th-30th, will see entries judged by top industry professionals including an unbeatable line-up of jury presidents from across Eurobest’s 25 year history. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony, the culmination of the 2012 European festival of creativity.

Entries are accepted into a total of 14 categories: Craft, Design, Direct, Film, Integrated, Interactive, Media, Mobile, Outdoor, PR, Promo & Activation, Print, Radio and, launching this year, Branded Content & Entertainment.

Branded Content & Entertainment will reward the creation of, or natural integration into, original content by a brand. The purpose of branded entertainment is to deliver marketing messages by engaging consumers via relevant content platforms rather than traditional advertising methods. Eurobest’s website offers info on all categories, rules, fees and how to enter.

Eurobest provides an opportunity to showcase and award the best work currently coming out of Europe, which is a diverse and great creative force. It offers the chance to learn and take inspiration from European creativity against a backdrop of industry networking and celebration. We are certain to see some truly outstanding entries in 2012.
