Opening for entries 27 January 2021
The World Media Awards celebrate the creativity and effectiveness of cross platform, cross border, content-driven advertising. The list of winners of the World Media Awards include many of the world’s leading brands, and winning agencies benefit from the recognition of the Awards by the WARC Media 100 Rankings.
You are invited to enter bold, influential strategies engaging international, influential audiences across nine CATEGORIES: Automotive; Brand & Media Owner Partnership; Corporate Influencer; Financial Services; Luxury & Lifestyle; Media & Entertainment; Technology & Telecoms; Travel & Tourism; and, new for 2021, the World Media Award for Social Good. The World Media Award winners are chosen by our independent jury, comprising media, content, and brand leaders from across the globe. The members of the World Media Group will also nominate the individual winner of the Content Leadership & Innovation Award.
To qualify to win a World Media Award, your work must have been implemented between January 2020 and March 2021. Your campaign must also have intentionally targeted three or more countries, and – whilst social reach and engagement will of course be important – your strategy must have included a paid media element.
HOW DO YOU SEE THE FUTURE FOR GLOBAL CONTENT-LED MARKETING
The World Media Group conducts an annual survey to explore the trends and investment intentions that will drive the future development of international, content-led marketing campaigns. If you are leading brand or media strategy for an international audience, you are invited to complete the survey – this should take no longer than five minutes of your time, your individual responses and data will not be shared, and one respondent, chosen at random, will have the opportunity to have £100 donated to a charity of their choice. Please complete the survey by 19 February 2021. The Survey Report will be published and shared with you in the first week of March 2021.

PLUS! The World Media Awards are not-for-profit, they are simply about benchmarking the best work. Whilst media owners who are not members of the World Media Awards will be asked to pay an entry fee, advertisers and agencies do not need to pay to enter. All we ask is that you consider donating to our chosen charity, Reporters Without Borders.

“Winning a World Media Award is particularly significant. What was crucial for us was to uncover those really unique stories. Travel and tourism can be quite saturated so we had to dig deep to find stories that are as unique as our audience.``
“I think the value of the World Media Group Awards is that it brings together all of these reputable publications and it allows brands like ours to determine where is the quality.``
