We get it.
It’s tough out there at the moment. It’s tough for our business and for your business.
This is why we’re making some changes to the format of The Creative Moment Awards 2020.
This year, The Creative Moment Awards will not have an awards ceremony.
There will be an entry fee (more on that below) but we are not going to ask any of our agency or in-house partners to spend their budgets on another set-piece awards night.
Continuing to recognise and celebrate outstanding creative work
We’ve taken this decision because we recognise that, like all businesses, PR, digital, creative and advertising agencies are having a hard time during the Covid-19 crisis and we just don’t feel comfortable asking people to attend another awards ceremony during what is likely to be a really tough time for their business.
So, when you enter The Creative Moment Awards you can be sure that the only cost you are committing to is the price of entering the awards. We will not be asking you for any money to attend an awards ceremony.
And we’ve kept the price of entering The Creative Moment Awards the same as last year at £195 + VAT early bird and £245 + VAT normal price.
Despite the uncertain world we currently live in with all the challenges that it brings, we believe that the work the creative industry has produced over the past 15 months must be recognised and celebrated.
It’s worth you noting that 10% of the entrance fee includes a voluntary donation to the national food bank charity The Trussel Trust. Your donation will support vital work, aiding a nationwide network of food banks that provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty during this incredibly difficult time.
The early entry deadline for The Creative Moment Awards is Monday 14th September and the final entry deadline is Friday 25th September
We’ve added new categories this year that embrace new thinking across the industry, with a special focus on the areas that we feel are important to creatives and in which strong creative work has excelled.

We have an amazing judging panel including a broad range of creative talent from across the sector. We feel very lucky and privileged to have such a brilliant line up of judges representing the breadth of the creative industry.
The shortlist for The Creative Moment Awards will be announced on the site on Thursday 5th November and the winners of Creative Moment Awards will be announced on Thursday 12th November.
Quite genuinely, we’re really excited about the opportunities this brings because we will be able to announce and showcase the winning work in a digital and shareable format that we haven’t been able to do before.
In many ways, it doesn’t really matter because of all the stuff that people are going through across the world at the moment, but Creative Moment has completely exceeded our expectations both in terms of the brilliant feedback we get from readers and traffic on the site.
Thanks so much for all your amazingly positive feedback over the last couple of years. It means a lot.
If you win a Creative Moment Award you’ll be gaining recognition from your peers and from a fresh, editorial brand that has real momentum amongst the creative community.
