Now in their 8th 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 – 50% of the 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.
