Seven simple steps to entering the Loeries

Read the rules

To remain at the cutting edge of our industry's expectations, we consistently innovate our categories and entry judging procedures. To find out what's new in 2018, click here.

Make sure your entry is eligible. Only work that has been approved by the brand or client, and that has been commercially published, launched or aired to a substantial audience for the first time between 1 June 2017 and 31 May 2018 can be entered.

Please read this How to Enter guide for more information on what the judges are looking for in a winning piece of work.

Check the categories and fees

Make sure you enter your work in the correct category.
The Loeries will endeavour to move entries to more appropriate categories during entry processing and prior to judging. However, it remains your responsibility to submit your entry into the correct category.

During judging the jury are not allowed to move entries between categories.
