Call for Entries is Now Open!
Now is your chance to command industry attention, honor your team and join an illustrious group of past winners, including Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, ESPN, Zillow, PepsiCo, IHOP Restaurants, Ad Council, Budweiser, Nike and more.
Enter now to win a Gold, Silver or Bronze award in 21 categories, including both Industry and Spotlight categories. Spotlight categories honor the latest trends in the industry.
The Grand Ogilvy Award—the “Grand Prix” of 2020 winners—will be bestowed to the most outstanding campaign selected from Gold award winners.
The application process for the 2021 Awards relies on a combination of structured questions and open-ended text, both of which will be provided to the jury. This combination ensures consistency among the information collected about each campaign. After jury review, the data will be stored in a completely anonymized database on secure ARF servers and utilized in the ARF database.
All campaigns must have run anytime during the past two calendar years (January 2019 – December 2020) or Q1 of this year (January – March 2021). See more eligibility requirements in the entry kit.
