The Golden Drum entry system is officially open for submissions. Advertisers, agencies, and other marketing communications professionals can enter their work until 5 August 2022. Additionally, the festival introduces the Super Early Bird rate and extends the Quantity and Covid-19 Group discounts.
Golden Drum opens call for entries until 5 August 2022 and admits all works that have been aired, published, or implemented for the first time between 1 September 2021 and 5 August 2022.
Agencies, advertisers, clients, design/production houses, media companies, and other creatives from 36 countries are invited to enter their works in four diverse sections: One-Channel Drum, Omni-Channel Drum, Craft Drum, Creative Business Excellence Drum, and a special All Juries Section.
The jury this year includes three professionals from Bulgarian communication agencies that are members of BACA:
Emilia Stefanova, managing director, All Channels Advertising – in the jury of the Creative Business Excellence Drum category
Martin Dimitrov, creative director and partner, Nitram – on the jury of the One-Channel Drum category
Marcel Levy, creative director and partner, Noble Graphics – on the jury of the Craft Drum category
2 new exciting awards to give out – Digital Agency of the Year and Production Agency of the Year. More here.
All Grand Prixes won at GD are entered into Immortal Awards automatically and free of charge.
Additional discounts are being planned. Since the Covid pandemic has not ended, we are keeping the Covid-19 group in the All Juries section and setting a 50% lower fee for entries in this group.
The quantity discount 10 + 1 also features in 2022: if you enter 11 works, the entry with the lowest fee is accepted free of charge.
New price for entering a series of works
Golden Drum festival is also presenting new possibilities for entering a series of works into the competition. The pricing of the series applies as follows: first entry of the series will be charged by the entry fee for the individual group (as posted on the Golden Drum website), while each additional entry within the series is charged a flat fee of 50 € per entry.
Golden Drum Festival is waiving entry fees for Ukrainian agencies for this edition of the festival in a gesture of symbolic support.
