  • Tick Keep it simple “Less is more. Many case films fail to communicate a clear idea and a compelling strategy.”
  • Tick Keep it brief  “The Juries are perfectly capable of grasping whether a project has merit based on a concise, coherent explanation.” 
  • Tick Keep it international “English isn’t always the first language. Entries that hinge on a cultural nuance may require additional information.” 
  • Tick Keep it fresh “You may have lived and breathed the work, but the Jury hasn’t. Look at the idea with a fresh pair of eyes and distill it for a new audience.” 
  • Tick Keep it relevant  “Carefully consider the best category for your entry and ensure that it demonstrates both relevance and specifity for your audience.”
