Real Media Awards 2024 open for entries

The 2024 Real Media Awards has launched, with entries now open across the 11 categories celebrating customer achievements in print and visual media sectors.,

This years’ Real Media Awards sees the expansion across categories in recognition of all industry sectors with a strong focus on effective print marketing.

Building the entry reach from previous years, the Real Media Awards launched a new award last year ‘Packaging, Brand Activation and Labels’ expanding into packaging, labels and wide format industry sectors, along with ‘Loyalty Program of the Year’ and ‘Data-Driven Campaigns’ which adds depth to the mail sector, whilst maintaining a category for Charity and Fundraising Mail as a specialty.

The 2024 Real Media Awards will continue major award categories such as: Brand of the Year; Agency of the Year; Best Emerging Talent, and Best Emerging Designer.

“The Real Media Awards is our industry’s opportunity to spotlight customers, celebrating the campaigns they entrusted our members to produce,” said Kellie Northwood, CEO, Visual Media Association (VMA).

“The night is filled with customers, printers, and suppliers coming together to celebrate the work they have achieved together. What better sales event for your customer than awarding theirs and your success together?”

The event will be held at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in South Wharf, Melbourne. This year’s theme of the Real Media Awards is’ 70s Retro’, recognising the longevity, relevance, and engagement of visual media channels.

“I love it when the customers enter. I contact the members to advise them their customers are entering on their behalf. Whilst that is fun, I encourage our members and industry to get in before their customers do to ensure they feel recognised and valued. 

“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 our services, it is wonderful to see the success of marketing at work, and we look forward to coming together to celebrate your success,” concluded Northwood.
