T-7 days to start submitting your films for Readers’ Choice Award, Merdeka TVC edition

Submissions for MARKETING Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards, Merdeka TVC edition officially starts on 1 August 2020. Over the years we have found that our coverage and polling of the Best CNY TVCs,  Best Merdeka TVCs and Best Raya TVCs based on our readers’ choice, have had growing success and traction. Our respondents have grown from a few hundred to over a thousand in recent years.

If you missed our winners from previous years, here are two TVCs from 2019 that definitely earned their spot on the top. Check out our coverage on Celcom Axiata’s Getaran Pertama film and PLUS Malaysia’s Raya TVCs titled ‘Tumpang‘.

This is your chance to show the Malaysians your creative superpower when it comes to television commercials (TVC). Beginning 1 August up to 15 September, we will be accepting submissions for Merdeka TVCs to join the Readers’ Choice Awards and potentially be the top 10 Malaysian TVC voted by our readers.

All winners will receive a certificate of recognition as Top 10 Merdeka TVCs of 2020 by Marketing Magazine and the organisers will work with each winner to produce feature articles on the winning TVCs.
