  • The Speckie Awards '08

    / Comments (0)

    Okay, pansies. No, not you. You, over there. Yeah you, listen up. The creators of the Speckie Awards heard you whining about clients killing all your great work. And they brought you an award show to prove you did indeed create all that great work you’ve been whining about them killing.

    The judges have been out doing really good work of their own (and actually selling it), but they’ll certainly be able to assess your fake work with equal grace. Stop your whining and send in. This is the award show you’ve been waiting for.

    Info
    The Speckie Awards were created to reward great ideas for advertising and marketing despite not being published or approved by a client and to recognize the best talent in the industry minus the politics, luck and committees.

    Rules
    Quite simply, enter. As long as it’s yours and it didn’t run, it will be accepted. The rules here are not about what you can’t do – but what you can. Enter ads for imaginary clients. Break the rules. Just not the one about it being a spec ad. It has to be spec. That’s all.

    Deadlines
    Hoping to emulate award shows across the world, we’ll be keeping the real actual deadline a complete mystery as we move it back on a whim. The current deadline is May 1st, 2008 at midnight.

Headline: “See what others don’t see. 13TH STREET. The Action and Suspense Channel.” Agency: Jung von Matt, Germany.
