Says Matt Cooper, founder, Little Black Book: “We were delighted with the first year’s Immortal Awards. We built the system, launched a show, judged in a super interesting way with a great jury and learnt stacks. We built this show with passion and a real belief that something different was needed – and it worked. We’ll fine tune the Immortals year in, year out. We have some great ideas for our next steps and we’re looking forward to this year’s event even more than the first!”
Following a hugely successful debut year, in which the inaugural world-class jury set an incredibly high standard for years to come, just four campaigns were deemed Immortal. The highest honour available, Immortality is only awarded to projects that will have a lasting impact on the brand or the industry and which raise the bar.
The jury were impressed by the high quality and diversity of the work shortlisted, also awarding Commendations to 12 pieces that they saw as exceptional campaigns and stand-outs for 2018.
A further 23 pieces achieved finalist status, distinguished from the initial shortlist as pieces with creative merit that warranted further debate and discussion.
The Immortal Awards is currently embarking on a global showcase tour, screening the 16 Immortal and Commendation winners to audiences around the globe. Kicking off in London in February, the next stop on the tour is at Framestore in LA on Thursday 4th April. More dates and locations will be unveiled soon.
Entries into The Immortal Awards will be accepted until September 9th 2019. All entries must be made for a commissioning client, and must have first aired, broadcast, displayed, launched or published between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019.
Every member of LBB is entitled to up to five entries, depending on their membership tier. Bronze members receive one entry, whilst Silver members get two entries and Gold members get five.
