+$Celebrating the very best in branding produced around the world, the sixth annual Brand Impact Awards is now open for entries, with the London-based ceremony taking place this September.
+$There’s plenty of time to enter your best branding work, with the deadline for entries end of play 31 May 2019 – but submit before 28 March and you’ll get an early-bird rate on ticket prices to the September event.
+$If you missed last year’s celebrations, here’s a brief look at the awards (and drinks) that were dished out!
+$Who should enter the Brand Impact Awards?
+$Entries are welcome from design studios, consultancies, branding agencies, ad agencies, in-house design teams and brand owners, and work can be branding programmes and branded campaigns commissioned nationally or internationally.
+$It doesn’t matter if the work comes from a massive agency or a small studio, just as long as it catches the eyes of the judges.
+$How are the BIAs judged?
+$Entries are judged on their originality, how well they serve their original brief and consistency – specifically consistent quality of idea and execution across two or more brand touchpoints.
+$They are also judged in context of their market sector – product design is not lumped in with sports, just as self-branding is judged exclusively from fashion.
+$And lastly, campaigns that extend or enhance existing brands are accepted, unlike with many other award schemes.
