We’re back. And bigger than ever. Or smaller, depending how you look at it. The Creative Circle Awards are all about celebrating the creativity of today. So our categories needed a bit of an overhaul.

There’s been a bit of streamlining overall, so this year there are just 62 categories. But crucially, EVERY category has a Gold Award up for grabs. That’s 62 Golds that could have your name on them.

We’ve also added two completely new categories that can’t be entered directly. Best Creative Department and Best Production House. These will be judged on overall success at the awards. So the more your agency enters, the better your chances. All the more reason to join the Circle.

Entries close on 24 Jan 2014. Stick it in your diary.

A full list of this year’s categories follows. As usual, there are no hard and fast rules about what can and can’t be entered into a category. But if the judges think it’s in the wrong place, they’ll kick it out, so use your noggin.
