The Real Media Awards entry deadline is extended to Friday December 31.
Find out how to enter The Real Media Awards.
Kellie Northwood, chief executive at The Real Media Collective says, “The Real Media Awards has grown year on year in both entries and sponsors. It is an opportunity to recognise people in our industry and their customers for their campaigns and partnerships.”
Major awards for the Real Media Awards include Brand of the Year; Publisher of the Year; Retailer of the Year; Agency of the Year; Judges Choice; Best Emerging Designer and Best Emerging Talent. There are also categories for home; fashion; cosmetics and pharmacy; recreation and leisure; B2C; retail; mail; publishing (magazines and books); digital and excellence in craft.
“The Design and Print industries bring our customers’ visions to life. So what better way to celebrate our craft than with our customers. That is the uniqueness of the Real Media Awards. From agencies to designers, printers to paper merchants, we are one collective industry.
“I love nothing better on the night than watching our members and their customers celebrate what they produced together.”
The Real Media Awards will host a gala event in Sydney on Friday March 18, 2022.
Organisers have added packaging and labels to the competition.
Northwood says, “Many of our members have diversified into packaging and labels. As a result, it is fitting to include this growth sector. Furthermore, we hosted webinars with designers and agencies throughout the year. They indicated how much packaging and label work they have been developing. It makes sense in our connection with printers and customers to introduce this Award into our Excellence in Craft category.
“Our Awards programme celebrates excellence across all that we do. This ranges from letterbox to publishing, print marketing to in-store signage, packaging to government journals, property portfolios to education prospectus. Print is one of the hardest working channels and should be celebrated as such.”
She concludes, “Bring back the glamour and passion of our industry into one collective. – from designer to stylist, photographer to printer – together, we award and applaud.”
