The One Show quarterly entry system was introduced two years ago to benefit everyone involved in the process, including creative teams who submit entries, agency management responsible for awards budgeting and judges who review the work.
“By submitting work when it’s fresh and top-of-mind, creative teams can more easily access materials while they are readily available, and capitalize in real time on the work’s media coverage and industry buzz,” noted Kevin Swanepoel, chief executive officer, The One Club for Creativity.
“Agency management gains a budgeting advantage by spreading awards spending over a 12-month period, amounting to four smaller amounts across two calendar years. From a judging perspective, the work is reviewed when it’s fresh and still topical, and jury members can give it greater attention because they’re reviewing smaller batches of entries.”
The quarterly system divides the entry periods into four deadlines, opening in July and ending on January 31. The first quarter deadline is August 15, followed by September 30, November 30 and the final one on January 31, 2018.
The finalists list will be announced in April 2018 in lead up the The One Show awards ceremonies on May 9 and 11, 2018 during Creative Week in New York.
