NNI Regional Ad of the Year


Welcome to the NNI Regional Ad of the Year award.

This initiative is designed to showcase the best ads that appear in the pages of our local and regional newspapers throughout 2012.

Our regional award is open to agencies and direct advertisers. The winner will be announced at the NNI Press Ad of the Year awards in spring 2013.

Entry Criteria

To be eligible for the NNI Regional Ad of the Year award, an ad must have been published in at least one NNI local/regional title during the calendar year 2012.

The competition is open to agency and non-agency (direct) entries.

Ads of all shapes and sizes are eligible.

Campaigns are eligible on condition that all entries (executions) were published during 2012.

In the interest of fairness, we will not accept ads created on behalf of individual members (newspapers) of NNI Local & Regional.

All entries must adhere to the ASAI’s code of standards – any ad that is subject to an upheld complaint to the ASAI will not be eligible.

Entries must be submitted digitally only – no hard copy entries will be accepted.

NNI reserves the right to use all entries for promotional/display purposes.

The closing date for entries is 31 January 2013.

Judging Criteria

This is a creative competition so while other factors, e.g. effectiveness, media strategy etc may be considered, creativity (concept, copy, art direction) will be the main deciding factor.

Judges will not consider ads that have been submitted on behalf of their own agency (if applicable).

The judging panel’s decision is final; no correspondence will be entered into.
