Who can enter the awards

The Oystercatchers Awards are open to marketing agencies (both members and non-members of the Oystercatchers Club). Some categories require a joint submission from agencies and their client partner(s) - please check the individual category criteria.

Unless specifically stated in the category criteria, the entries should only focus on work carried out in the UK.

What is the entry format

The entry – submitted online – comprises a 150-word summary and three questions of 400 words (note in some cases you are permitted more words, check the individual category process for further details). These questions aim to explore three core areas:

  • 400 words: the background
  • 400 words: what you have done
  • 400 words: the results and evidence

Begin your entry online to see the specific questions for the category you wish to enter. You may also upload supportive creative images and assets to help illustrate the entry and aid the judges in their evaluations.

Who will see my entry

The entries will be seen by our jury, who all sign non-disclosure agreements to ensure protection of any commercially sensitive information.

Oystercatchers, or its sister brands across Xeim, may wish to publish case studies or ask you to speak at our events based on your entry. Please mark any commercially sensitive material in your entry.
