The 2023 Real Media Award entries deadline has been extended to 25 August, due to increased demand from entrants. The awards team has agreed to provide additional time for entrants to lodge multiple submissions across all categories.
This year’s Real Media Awards sees the expansion across categories in recognition of all industry, with a strong focus on innovative print marketing.
Building the entry reach from previous years, the Real Media Awards now carry a new award ‘Packaging, Brand Activation and Labels’ expanding into packaging, labels and wide format industry sectors.
‘Loyalty Program of the Year’ and ‘Data-Driven Campaigns’ adds depth to the mail sector, whilst maintaining a category for Charity and Fundraising Mail as a specialty.
The 2023 Real Media Awards will also continue Major Award categories such as: Brand of the Year; Agency of the Year; Best Emerging Talent and Best Emerging Designer which are all highly coveted awards delivering recognition to the finalists and winners across the entire industry.
The Real Media Awards celebrate all things print, marketing and brand with effectiveness, craft, creativity and innovation recognised.
From brochureware to print collateral, catalogues to magazines, property portfolios to packaging, point of sale to direct mail, the Real Media Awards celebrates printers and customer achievements together in partnership.
The theme for the Real Media Awards this year is timelessness, luxe, and value, reflecting the timeless quality and value of print across all customer sectors.
“The Real Media Awards continue to evolve and expand to all industry sectors. We consistently see excellence and innovation year after year, and have proudly created an awards program that reflects the synergy of the industry. I love nothing better on the night than watching our members and their customers celebrate their success together,” Print and Visual Communication Association CEO Kellie Northwood said.
Recovering from COVID, the Real Media Awards, has grown its reach over 2021 and 2022 and continues to seek growth in entries this year to reach or surpass the 650 entries achieved in 2019.
The event will be held at Aerial in South Wharf precinct in Melbourne and a smaller New Zealand event recognising industry leadership across the channel will be held.
“Each year we are seeing more and more entrants tell us a story of their success, the journey their campaigns have taken and the results that have been achieved using print. It is a wonderful to see the success of marketing at work and we look forward to coming together to celebrate your success,” Northwood added.
