Entry Deadline - 20th May

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; Travel & Tourism; Technology & Telecoms; 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 WHAT’S NEXT FOR CONTENT MARKETING survey has revealed an optimistic outlook for content marketing – whilst advertising and communications budgets have clearly been negatively impacted by the crises of 2020, a higher number of advertisers expect the proportion of budget allocated to content-led communication to increase in 2021 versus those who experienced an increase in 2020.

Here’s just some of the other key findings…

  • Agencies, communications consultants, and media owners agreed that trusted media channels would be the preferred channel to share or amplify brand storytelling
  • Half of all our respondents are investing in more trusted media environments to ensure brand safety
  • 84% believe that brands should align with social issues and messaging
