It’s time to gather your best work, APPIES 2021 is officially open for submission

The annual APPIES Malaysia Marketing Awards that honors the best marketing campaigns with outstanding success stories, as well as the people behind them, is officially accepting submissions for 2021.

APPIES Malaysia is an annual event that presents a rare opportunity for creative, media, digital and marketing agencies or brands to present their best campaigns to the industry. This year’s winners will receive Gold, Silver or Bronze trophies for 10 brand new categories, and 7 special Best of Best categories (red trophies) that require no submissions!

What makes the APPIES a sought-after award is the extensive selection process that takes place, which brings together 30 individuals from various industries, who have made their mark in the industry, as judges. The validation and recognition behind each gold, silver and bronze award is undisputed. 

If you’ve never attended an APPIES before, it is known as the “TED of Marketing” and similar to TED Talks, APPIES is the chance for great presenters with outstanding work to show it off to some of Malaysia’s most important industry leaders.

Eligible campaigns are presented in an interactive format comprising a four-minute creative reel summary, followed by a six-minute oral presentation highlighting significant aspects of the campaign. 

In light of our country’s ongoing battle with COVID-19, presentations and judging for APPIES 2021 will be conducted online on 29 & 30 May 2021. Despite hosting this event virtually this is the only event in Malaysia where live presentations meets live judging.

The deadline for submissions this year is 16 April 2021.
