The awards – now in their second year – will be presented at the culmination of October’s Festival of Branded Content and Entertainment in Sydney.

The Festival is organised by Mumbrella’s parent company Focal Attractions.

The awards work is to be judged by a two stage shortlist and finalist process, with a jury from around the world assessing the entries.

Following a number of requests, the closing date for BE Award submissions has been extended from today to close of business on Friday August 30.

The Awards include a number of new categories designed to reflect the breadth and diversity of creative work in this space. New categories includes native advertising, use of music, experiential, gaming and interactive. This year the BE Awards are also open to work from across the APAC region.
