The APEX Awards

It's how the best get better.

 

Since their inception by the ACA in 1995, an APEX Award is the profession’s highest – and only – award for communications campaign performance excellence in an industry that is constantly refining and redefining creativity.

 

And they’re not easy to win. The adjudication process for APEX is stringent as entrants have to prove that their campaign(s) achieved performance excellence by contributing a measured return to their client’s bottom line.

 

An APEX is not an award for creativity as such because “effectiveness” is not positioned against “creativeness”. If, however, APEX entrants can show that creativity contributed to their campaign’s effectiveness, so much the better. It is therefore incumbent on advertisers that have won creative awards to put the real seal on their achievements by demonstrating that their creativity effectively contributed to client profitability.

 

An APEX thus represents a demonstration of both strategic and creative effectiveness and showcases award winners as the leaders in their field. These awards are a clear fit for the ACA and our approach to the profession.

 

Attending a compulsory briefing

Prior to entering the APEX, the ACA holds a compulsory briefing where we discuss everything pertaining to the APEX Awards. This allows potential entrants to adequately prepare their entries and, therefore, stand a better chance of winning an award.
