The Rules


  • All entries must not exceed 1000 words. The word count does not include the company information at the start of the form or the questions already within the form.

  • To see what the judges are looking for in a winning entry, take a look at our judging criteria.

  • When creating a title for your entry, please structure your title in the following format:
    “Agency Name & Client Name – Campaign/Product Name” or just “Agency/Team Name” for agency/team awards e.g. “SEMrush & SEMrush Search Awards – SEO Campaign”

  • Entries should relate to work undertaken between August 2019 – August 2020.

  • Please ensure you fill out a separate Word Doc/PDF entry form each entry submission. For example, if you submit 5 different entries, you will need to complete 5 individual entry forms and upload these separately on each submission.

  • If you are uploading the same entry into another category, you will need to edit your entry form and make sure the correct category is checked. If the correct category is not checked, your entry may be classed as void and therefore not judged.

  • Entry questions are dependent on your chosen category, so please take care when filling out each entry form. If your entry form does not match your online submission and category selection, your entry may be classed as a duplication error and may not be judged.

  • Entry forms can be designed to your company branding, as long as they contain the appropriate questions/headings in which the judges mark upon.

  • All entries must be paid for at the time of submission.

  • Please ensure you read the terms and conditions before submitting an entry.

Entry Fees

Each entry will be charged an administration fee of $175 AUD (+ VAT if applicable) per entry which must be paid when submitting your entry or entries.

Discounts are offered for multiple entries. Any organisation submitting 3 entries will receive 1 additional free entry.

FILE UPLOAD FORMATS

All files must not exceed 2MB each.

When creating your online portal profile, please make sure your company logo is of high quality as this will appear on the awards presentation should you be shortlisted.

Please ensure your entry form is uploaded as a Word Document or PDF, no other formats will be accepted.

Supporting materials can be provided in Word, PDF or JPEG formats. Zip Files and videos cannot be accepted. If you wish to use video evidence as your supporting material, please include a link to the file online in your entry form under ‘supporting documents’.
