The International ANDY Awards has announced the shortlist for their six regional competitions. In an effort to break barriers that exist around cultural context, Juries representative of creative excellence in the area came together to select the best ideas entered into the competition.
“Our hope is that more people have their work represented in the Show. We wanted to eliminate barriers that exist that may deter some agencies to submit work – whether that be cost to compete or missed cultural context,” said Gina Grillo, President & CEO of The International ANDY Awards.
The APAC Competition shortlist represents the best ideas across nine countries with independent agencies leading. Ideas from ADK Holdings lead the Greater China shortlist while Impact BBDO lead in the SWANA Competition. Those who placed will be shortlisted for the main, global competition should they choose to move their work forward into the Global competition.
All entrants who participated in regionals can choose to move their work forward to the Global competition. There is no requirement to participate in regionals in order to submit to the Global competition. Each region will now compete for title of ‘Best of’ including Africa, APAC, Greater China, Europe, SWANA, and Latin America to be announced with the full winners list in April 2023.
