The Immortal Awards gears up for another record-breaking year as it opens 2024 call for entries

LONDON, UK — The Immortal Awards has launched its call for entries for the 2024 competition. The entry system is now open to all Little Black Book members, who can make their submissions here until the final deadline on September 05, 2024.

Entry into the competition is free for all Little Black Book members, with each member office able to submit up to five projects to the show.

Now into the seventh year of competition, The Immortal Awards is building on another year of record-breaking growth in 2023. 


Alongside the introduction of five new jury days – for each of France, Spain, The Netherlands, the Nordics, and India – the show saw a 49% year-on-year increase in entry numbers, with work submitted from entrant companies in 55 different countries.

This year, The Immortal Awards will return to host another 10 local and six regional jury days, before culminating in the global, prize-giving jury day in December 2024. 

Last year, just three projects were deemed Immortal by the global jury, with a further nine projects receiving Commendations. The 12 projects now form The Immortal Awards Showcase Tour, which is being shown at cinemas and in-house at creative companies all over the world.

Emma Wilkie, Awards Director of The Immortal Awards, said: ”2023 was an excellent year for the Immortals with more entries and more participating companies submitting from an increasing number of countries. I look forward to consolidating that growth in the year ahead and am excited, as always, to see the submissions and juries’ deliberations as they decide what best-in-class creative advertising from around the world deserves Immortal status.”

Paul Monan, Awards Director of The Immortal Awards as well, added: “We are really proud of how the show has grown in just six years and can’t wait to start this year’s competition. Last year was our biggest and best yet and none of it would be possible without the incredible support from our partners all over the world. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to run our jury days in person or spend the first half of the calendar year taking the winners reel on tour. The winners’ showcases have been a real blast and it’s incredible to see how inspired creatives are by the standard of our winners. Our juries have consistently set the highest of creative benchmarks and it’ll be great to see which projects come out on top in 2024.” 

The best work from each country-based round, as decided by the local juries, will qualify for the respective regional competition alongside the best work from the rest of the region. A series of regional jury days – North America, LATAM, Europe, MEA, Asia, and ANZ – will then determine which projects receive Finalist status and qualify for the final, global round of judging. 

A global grand jury, composed of jurors from each regional jury, will ultimately decide which projects – if any – will receive an Immortal Award or a Commendation in December 2024. The winners will be announced in January 2025.

Entries into The Immortal Awards will be accepted until September 05, 2024. All entries must be made for a commissioning client and must have first aired, broadcast, displayed, launched, or published between September 01, 2023 and August 31, 2024.
