Mumbrella Awards 2020 entries are now open

Entry into the 2020 Mumbrella Awards, Australia and New Zealand’s largest media and marketing awards, is now open.

Entries are now open for the Mumbrella Awards 2020

This year there are 30 categories that cross people, teams, work, and ideas to celebrate the best in the industry. The categories have been carried over from 2019.

Mumbrella will again use an independent group of over 100 of the most senior industry leaders to judge the awards, including a full day of live judging on June 23 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.

The live judging requires shortlisted entrants to present their submission to the specific jury group deliberating over their category and gives the jury the chance to directly engage with the entrant and ask questions.

Those entering Creative Agency of the Year and Media Agency of the Year awards will have a judging panel visit their offices if they are shortlisted, no matter where they are located. Creative agencies will be visited on June 24 and 25, while media agencies will have their appointments on June 26.

In previous years this has seen the jury group attend agencies in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and even Auckland.

As in the previous two years, for transparency, Mumbrella may publish winning entries as they are submitted. Information shared during the live judging component at the Hilton Hotel will not be published.

Over 500 entries were received across the awards in 2019. The big winners included CHE Proximity, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, Cummins & Partners and Special Group.
