The organisers have amended the eligibility criteria as campaigns of ‘Real Estate & Construction’ Brands or ‘Retail Brands’ are highly localised covering single cities. The minimum number of media units was also reduced in keeping with the single-city criterion.
All other criteria for entries in the sub-categories ‘Real Estate & Construction’ and ‘Retail Brands’ remain the same, including, use of at least three different formats, information on activation if done, and minimum campaign duration of seven days.
Meanwhile, the last date of submission of entries has been extended to 30 May 2017.
All entries must be submitted online via http://awards.oacasia.org/participation.
