What makes the PHNX Awards different?

From the beginning, we’ve designed the PHNX to be accessible and easy to enter, with 25 carefully chosen categories and a diverse jury like no other. Its aim is to celebrate the year’s best work in a spirit of generosity and optimism. Yes, it’s a competition – but above all it’s a celebration

What can I enter?

Film, print, radio, activations, PR case studies, design... all the main creative disciplines.

The competition is open to advertising agencies, PR agencies, film production companies, media agencies, design studios, photographers, freelance creatives and advertisers worldwide.

To ensure accessibility (while paying some people like the guys who wrote this website) the competition is initially free to enter, with a fee of just 150 euros per entry ONLY IF THE ENTRY IS SHORTLISTED

What do I win?

There will be Gold, Silver and Bronze winners, as well as five Grand Prix winners. The trophies will be virtual, but we’ll sing your praises on the heavily-trafficked AdForum site and among our extensive press community. Not to mention in an online celebration on June 16.


Entries must have been approved by a client and broadcast, published or taken place between March 2021 and May 2022.


The PHNX Awards are craft-focused. The five main areas are Film, Print, Strategy & Technique, Digital and Design, with sub-categories for each. See a full list of the 25 categories here.

Who is on the jury?

Our jury is open to talents, business leaders and thinkers from every corner of the creative world, a mixture you won’t find on any other jury. From top creatives to those running the world’s leading brands, if they have valid experience they have a place. Find an update here.
