100 of the world’s leading creatives will judge Cresta. They work independently. There is
no discussion, no politics. Just honest, expert assessment that you can trust. Some have said it’s
the fairest international test of creative work.
Cresta has 16 competitions covering everything from traditional media
to the latest technologies. All simply curated to make maximising your potential
for prize winning much easier.
In Cresta’s history, we have had entries from more than 90 countries.
Winners of our Grand Prix, Gold, Silver and Bronze Cresta trophies come from
every corner of the planet. Last year we handed out major trophies to agencies in
Egypt, the Philippines and Norway (to name but a few), as well as the US and UK.
This is what last year’s Jury Chair, TBWA Malaysia CCO Gigi Lee, said about us.
“Cresta has a no politics, no discussion judging system.
The show has a purely mathematical system,
and that’s why I respect it.
Tough selection, no games, and a panel of respected creatives.
The one job: Find the very best work from around the world,
and establish the absolute creative standard.”
In the words of the famous ad campaign, we are trying harder.
This year, for example, we’ve added lots of little improvements
to make entering Cresta better for everyone.
Our new Entry Kit is state-of-the-art, you can now pay in various currencies and
we will even work with you to maximise your prize potential.
We have tried to ensure that entering Cresta is always good value,
and if you take advantage of our Early Bird and other offers
it is exceptional value for such a prestigious international award.
We want all entrants to get a good return on their investment,
whether or not you win a major prize.
So our website and our extensive new social media presence will feature
more of your work, more of your people and more about your agency.
We really do want to publish your articles, your ideas and your views.
Thanks to award-winning designer Fernando Gutierrez we’ve improved our look.
Now we’re busy making everything else better.
Above we told you how the awards themselves are improving, but we’re also
building a community that champions the value and importance of creativity,
via a host of events, content and partnerships.
Cresta Futures is our new series of initiatives to help next
generation creatives find the right career and into work.
We’re talking to agencies about our unique World Open Day when
students and young creatives can just turn up and find out how the world’s
best creative companies really operate.
There’s there’s the MentorMe programme and Portfolio Nights….
Cresta is now run by creatives, for creatives.
We understand what you do every day.
How challenging it is to excel rather than just be good.
How difficult it is to maintain the highest creative standards in everything you do.
That’s why we exist to inspire, recognise and reward your work.
Our Cresta Futures initiative is an exciting year round programme that connects you to potential creative stars of tomorrow.
