At our final Exco meeting, we made the call to drop The Clio Awards as an officially endorsed Creative Circle award show as we already endorse an American award show, The One Show. This doesn’t mean you can’t enter The Clio Awards – or any other awards for that matter – it just means you won’t receive Creative Circle points for any wins. The officially endorsed Creative Circle Award shows are now Cannes, The One Show, D&AD, The Loeries and the Creative Circle Yearly Awards.
2015 will see the introduction of the Integrated category in CC Award Of The Month. Integrated will follow the same format as Digital and Experiential in that it will be judged every three months and Arlene will be sending out the monthly entry deadlines shortly.
Finally, I’d like to thank all CC members for the support I’ve been shown in my first year as Chairperson, particularly our evergreen General Manager, Arlene Donenberg, and our intrepid media partner, Julie Maunder. We’ve achieved much in a year and I’m hoping 2015 will see the Creative Circle go from strength to strength.
Creative Circle Chairperson.
