FMBE AWARDS 2020

MAIN ENTRY TEXT SUBMISSION FORM

ENTRY DEADLINE: MONDAY JULY 20TH 2020 (exception, categories T, U, V – see entry criteria PDF for details)

Please complete those areas indicated by typing into this document before saving it for email entry

IMPORTANT!  PLEASE READ THESE NOTES BEFORE COMPLETING THIS FORM

  1. Please complete in 10pt or 12pt type.
  2. Bullet points are perfectly acceptable where appropriate.
  3. Your submission should be succinct, factual and relevant to the category entered.  Although you can send supporting material to enhance your entry, this form should be as complete a record as possible.
  4. Confidential information for judge’s eyes only should be clearly identified as such in this document.
  5. Headings 1- 3 inclusive should be completed in NO MORE THAN 1500 WORDS IN TOTAL. A 5-point deduction (from a maximum score of 100) applies for each 250 words over. An Appendix may be added but this should be sent as a separate document.
  6. You may name your agency in the write up (judges are client based and often know which accounts belong to which agencies anyway), but please keep the entry paper low on agency branding
  7. Do not paste in diagrams, pictures or logos. Your entry may cross refer judges to relevant support materials.
  8. If you are entering a campaign in several categories, make sure your submission is relevant to the category entered.
  9. There are 3 obligatory sections below (numbered 1-3), indicative of an average maximum of 500 words per section. Brevity is often successful, so you may want to aim for less than this – especially in ‘Effectiveness’ categories.
  10. It is not essential to show off your agency’s work in isolation. Delegation, combination with other agencies and direct involvement by the brand team are often going to help underpin a successful campaign
  11. CATEGORIES N & M do not fit with the headings below. For these entrants should answer the criteria in a plain word document.
