2015 Euro Effie Awards competition is now accepting entries

The 2015 Euro Effie Awards competition is now accepting entries.

Run by the European Association of Communications Agencies (EACA), the Euro Effies are open to any campaign that ran in two or more European markets in 2014.

"We had a record number of winners in last year’s Euro Effies competition. This doesn’t only mean the campaigns are better, it means people are getting better at writing their submissions," said Dominic Lyle, Director General of the EACA. “Knowing this makes me very happy to announce the 2015 Euro Effies’ call for entries and I look forward to another year of fantastic work.”

This year’s jury will be chaired by Guillaume Conteville, Head of Marketing Western Continental Europe Division at Mastercard.

The 2015 competition introduces two new categories: David vs. Goliath and Brand Experience. David vs. Goliath will reward campaigns that showcased how small brands took on “sleeping giants,” while the Brand Experience category will recognize campaigns that effectively created a unique brand experience that extended beyond traditional advertising.

The 2015 entry period closes on April 15, 2015, with a late deadline being offered through May 15, 2015. Winners will be awarded at a gala, held in Brussels, later in the year.
