Entries for the prestigious annual PANPA Advertising & Marketing Awards are open for news media publishers from around the Asia-Pacific region.
The Advertising & Marketing Awards seek to recognise and celebrate advertising and marketing campaigns created by the news media industry, as well as creative, sales and marketing teams in Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific and Asia.
The awards feature three key categories: Advertising, Marketing and Executive Excellence.
Presented in conjunction with the annual industry conference, the PANPA Advertising & Marketing Awards attracted a record 450 entries last year.
The Newspaper Works chief executive Mark Hollands said, “The Advertising & Marketing Awards are a hugely popular and prestigious awards event that reflects news media excellence across all platforms.
“They recognise the outstanding talent and work that is reshaping how the news media industry markets and sells itself to readers, advertisers and media agencies.”
The Advertising categories recognise publishers’ in-house work only, while both agency and in-house executions are eligible for the Marketing categories.
Entries for the 2016 Advertising & Marketing Awards close on Friday 27 May and finalists will be announced on Wednesday 6 July. Winners will be announced on Thursday 1 September at a cocktail event at the Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney.
