The Creative Review Annual 2017

The Creative Review Annual is our major awards scheme and is trusted by the industry to highlight stand-out work from around the world. Showcasing the best in visual communications from the past year, the Annual celebrates this work and supports those who produce it. It offers entrants a visual platform to be seen by peers and potential clients across the wider creative community.

Each year, our panel of industry experts choose the work they feel represents the best of the year across all aspects of Advertising, Design and Digital.

Winning work will be published in our special Annual issue of Creative Review in May 2017 (on sale in April), as well as across many of our online platforms including

There is no limit on the number of categories one piece of work can be entered against. There is also no limit to the number of entries any organisation or individual can submit. If a project is entered into, and displays excellence in, more than one category it will be recognised as such in the Annual.
