MORE CATEGORIES & MORE WAYS TO WIN

PHARMA: We’re seeking the best life sciences and pharmaceutical industry advertising from 2023. This category, which was launched two years ago, aims to highlight the creativity of the pharma industry from small to large companies and brands.

CREATIVE EFFECTIVENESS: The advertising community is increasingly recognizing the importance of creative effectiveness as brands are demanding to know whether campaigns are producing results. Through the effective use of media, creativity and analytics, agencies and brands are using a more comprehensive approach to determine success on a broad range of metrics. Based on this increased focus, we are introducing this new category for the Jersey Awards.

To submit an entry, choose from a list of potential metrics, found on the entry form for Creative Effectiveness, and show proof that your entry was effective.
