Now in their 7th year, The World Media Awards are established as the pre-eminent awards by the international brand and advertising teams who are driving engagement and success for global brands through content-led marketing strategies.  Searching for the very best in cross-platform, cross-border advertising, our independent, multi-national jury will be looking for creative thinking across storytelling and for inspiring examples of how to engage with international, influential audiences.

The World Media Awards are not for profit – £30 of every £40 entry fee will be donated to Reporters Without Borders, a charity which protects and supports journalism and freedom of speech around the world.

Winning a World Media Award brings not only recognition and reward for the teams involved, but winning agencies will also have their Award recognised by the WARC Media 100 Rankings, and all winners will be featured in an advertising campaign worth €750,000 hosted by the quality global media brands that make up the World Media Group.

ENTER BY 12 MAY 2022

Entries are invited from brand marketing teams, agencies, and media owners across 10 categories.  To be eligible to enter your work must….

  • Have been implemented between January 2021 and March 2022
  • Be truly international: your strategy must have intentionally targeted audiences in at least three countries
  • Have been reliant on a strategic media spend [although our Jury will of course also be keen to hear how PR and social media have been used to amplify the reach]

Why you should be entering the World Media Awards

Global Content Marketing Trends Survey – 2022

Global brands are continually innovating and developing their approach to storytelling and content-led marketing for international audiences.  The annual World Media Awards Survey aims to provide a snapshot of how brands are using content  and with what objectives and KPIs.  We will compare how brand owners, agencies, and media owners would define the essential ingredients for successful content strategies and explore investment intentions.

If you are responsible for briefing, creating, or implementing content-led communications for international audiences – whether working for a brand, an agency, or a media owner – you are invited to participate in the survey.  You will receive a complimentary copy of the Global Content Marketing Trends Report and will also have the opportunity to join a draw to win a £100 Amazon gift voucher.  It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete the Survey and all your data will be confidential – we only report on aggregate results.
