The One Club for Creativity, the world’s foremost non-profit organization celebrating creativity in advertising and design, has announced that deadline for entries to the 44th Annual One Show Awards and the ADC 96th Annual Awards has been extended to February 17.
The One Show utilizes a quarterly entry system, offering four separate submission periods. This gives entrants the opportunity to submit work while it is first to market and top of mind. Our judges will view and judge the work on an ongoing basis by quarter, allowing them to view work in smaller batches and affording them more time to consider each piece. So far, three deadlines for the 2017 One Show have passed (July, September and December 2016) with the fourth and final deadline now extended to February 17.
The One Show and the ADC Annual Awards will take place at The One Club for Creativity’s Creative Week (May 8-12) in New York City, the preeminent festival celebrating the intersection of advertising, design and the arts.
Shortlisted entries advance to final judging, which will take place in March in Bermuda, and finalists will be announced in April. The overall winners will then be announced at The One Show on May 10/12 which takes place during Creative Week in New York. Irish Marketing Journal is one of the Media Partners of The One Show 2017 while two Irish creative directors- Alan Kelly of Rothco and Carol Lambert of Publicis Dublin- have joined the judging panels for the One Show.
Meanwhile, Rothco has already been shortlisted in five separate categories for this year’s One Show. The Dublin-based agency has been shortlisted in the Social Media category for its recruitment drive for the Defence Forces which saw it bag a Cannes Lions in 2016. It has also been shortlisted twice in the Film category for its Ireland’s Ancient East Bed Time Stories campaign for Failte Ireland. Meanwhile in the Radio category, its campaign for Rentokil has been shortlisted twice.
