The second edition of the C2A is up and running, and we have already received many interesting entries. With the final stretch of submissions to the Creative Communication Award approaching, we are receiving a number of questions about the entry process.
To save you asking, you can find here answers to some questions you may have, answers to some questions you may not have thought of yet, and some remarkably good advice for entering your strongest submission possible! Nevertheless, feel free to get in touch with us, we always love to hear from you!
What do I need to submit an entry?
The main things we will need you to provide are: 1) An image or images of your project; 2) A brief description of the project; 3) Names of those who should be credited for the project (i.e. company, designer, creative, etc.).
If you want to have an exact idea of what the submission looks like, we suggest that your create one here. The payment is the last thing to do, so you will know exactly what is required.
Is the submission process complicated?
The submission process is very easy and straightforward, everything is done online. First, you sign up for a free membership profile. Once you’re a member, log in with your username and password, and you will be directed to the submissions page.
There are three steps to create an entry, which you can save to go back to later if needed. Fill in the required information and upload your images and other documents. Preview your entry and, finally, proceed to payment.
What are the entry requirements?
We don’t have strict requirements, other than that all projects should be no older than 5 years old.
As long as your creative project fits into any one of our categories, it will be eligible. If you are unsure as to which category fits best, check out our past winners and if you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.
My images on the preview page look blurry, what can I do?
On the “preview entry” page, photos do not show at their full resolution, that is why they look a bit blurry. However, when the jury make their selection, they receive the full resolution images. If you are a winner, these are also the images used on our website and for promotion.
What are the criteria for judging?
You can have a look at what the jurors will be looking for in 2020 entries here.

Can I leave my name/name of my company on my submitted documents?
C2A competition is not anonymous. Feel free to leave your company logo or name on your uploaded documents.
How does the scoring system work?
Our goal is to make the jurying as objective and fair as possible, to award projects by minimizing individual subjectivity and respect our expert jurors’ opinions.
Our esteemed panels of judges will score your work on a scale from 1 to 100. Once the jury has finished voting, the scores will be tallied to determine the C2A winners.
Nothing prevents the jurors from awarding multiple projects in a single category, so everyone has an equal chance of winning, no matter the level of competition in one given category.
We wish you great success with the Creative Communication Award!
