More than 300 entries flooded in last week for the first Campaign Awards as the deadline for entries passed on Wednesday. Agencies from virtually every major city in the Middle East, including Riyadh, Jeddah, Dubai, Beirut, Damascus, Cairo, Kuwait City, Muscat, Doha, Manama, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi, put forward their best work. As well as celebrating the most creative advertising campaigns in TV, print, outdoor, radio, online, DM and integrated, achievements in media planning and PR events will also be recognised in the competition. There will also be awards for the best media agency, advertising agency and PR agency, along with recognition for young creatives. The judging process is being chaired by Jan Zijderveld, chairman of the GCC Association of Advertisers and boss of Unilever Middle East. With entries still being collated as this edition of Campaign went to press, it was too early to say which categories had seen the most entries. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Dubai on 31 January. A full list of shortlisted entries will be published in a fortnight’s time, at which point table sales will also open on a first come, first served basis. Campaign editor Tim Burrowes said: “The response has been excellent. It demonstrates the industry’s hunger for an impartial awards process to show off its very best work.”
