Is The APPIES the Olympics of Advertising?

While I say this in jest, let’s have fun drawing some “parallels”…

Performance before Live audience: All Finalists need to present before a panel of judges made of CMOs and an industry audience.

Preparation & Training: Teams at the APPIES spend time researching, strategising and fine-tuning their presentations to ensure maximum impact and effectiveness. ​

Team Sport: Like the Olympics with 9 team sports, The APPIES is also a team sport made up of Marketer/Agency.

Showcasing Talent: APPIES offers a platform for the competitors to display their creative and strategic strengths to peers and clients.

Recognition and Prestige: Winning an APPIES award can significantly boost the profile of participating brands and agencies.

Record breaking: Both require continuous innovation and creativity and a quest for perfection to gain a competitive edge.

Expert Assessment: All performances are similarly evaluated by seasoned judges using predefined criteria. ​

Diversity of Experiences: Both exemplify the human pursuit of excellence and display a rich tapestry of ideas and competence.
