ELIGIBILITY

  • The competition is open to all clients, media owners, advertising agencies, digital agencies, production or design agencies, or any other parties involved in digital communications for advertising purposes.
  •  It is the responsibility of the entrant to ensure that the commissioning client has the rights to use the intellectual property of the brand promoted. Entries cannot be made without the prior permission of the advertiser/owner of all rights that subsist in the advertisement.
  • All entries submitted must be launched or current during the period from 1 August 2012 to 30 September 2013.
  • Entries will be accepted on the basis that they are designed for implementation in Asia or are created by Asian Agencies or companies.

For the purpose of Digital Asia Awards, those countries are:
Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, The Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan.
Thus work can be entered by agencies outside Asia if it adheres to the above criteria. Likewise work that has run outside Asia may be entered as long as it has been entered by Asian Agencies.

  • The Organisers may refuse entries, which offend national or religious sentiments or public taste or which in the Organiser’s opinion breach any applicable laws, regulations or codes of practise or infringe any third party rights. Any entry which, up to and including the final day of judging, has infringed any of its country of origin's voluntary or regulatory codes of practice, is not eligible. It is the responsibility of the Entrant to inform the Organisers should their Entry breach the provisions of this paragraph prior to the judging and Awards Ceremony.
  • All entries must be designed for posting on the Internet or other digital channels.
  • Entries must not have been entered into the awards in previous years.
  • In the event that a campaign runs over an extended period of time (with multiple implementation dates), it is the responsibility of the entrant to provide adequate proof of the campaign’s evolution from year to year. In light of the information provided by the entrant, the Organizer retains the right to decide if the entry has evolved sufficiently enough that it may be regarded as a new entry and thus be eligible.
  • Only one party may enter an entry, i.e. either the digital agency or the Advertising agency may enter a piece that both parties have worked on, but not both. Which of the companies is going to make the entry should be agreed in advance between the parties concerned. In the event that the same entry is submitted by two different entrant companies, only the first entry will be accepted.
  • There can only be one entrant company per entry. The entrant company is responsible for payment of entry fees and is the automatic point of contact for the entry. Multiple companies can be credited for their contribution to the work entered. Please ensure that all contributing companies are credited on your entry form before finalizing your submission.
  • All entries submitted must have been created within the context of a normal paying contract with a client, except in the case of self-promotion and non-profit organisations (incl. public services). That client must have paid for all or the majority of the costs of the Digital case.
  • The Organisers may contact the client for any entry at the request of the jury at any time during the voting process should any questions about the implementation or presentation of the work arise.
  • The Organisers will endeavour to move entries to more appropriate categories if necessary. However, the Jury may not be allowed to move entries between categories during the judging.
  • All entry forms must be completed online at www.digitalasiafestival.com , including an entry form via our entry site, an entry payment page, and a client endorsement email response from a senior manager authorising the entry and claims. Incomplete entries and entries that have not been endorsed before entry deadline may be disqualified by the Organizer. Please note that entries submitted online will not be considered complete until all the relevant entry materials have been received, both online and in the Organizer’s office.
