What period of time should the event / activity / campaign have taken place in, to be eligible for entry?

Any Events / Projects executed between 1st April, 2018 to 31st March, 2019, are eligible for entry.

Steps for making entries.

There are broadly two steps in the entry process:

A. Registering the Company as a WOW Awards Asia entrant

B. Creating and submitting entries for Jury evaluation

A. Registering the company as a WOW Awards Asia entrant

Interested entities (companies, brands, artists, venues) can do so by clicking on the ‘SUBMIT ENTRY’ button here or in the menu bar. Once here, register yourself and create a login for an account through which all the WOW Award Asia entries of the entity can be managed. Each entity can have only ONE account, which can be accessed by the login details by various individuals related to the entity across branch offices (where relevant).

Once the registration is complete, an e-mail confirming registration will be sent to the applicant’s e-mail address. The account is then active. This is a one-time process. The account will have a list of the categories of the WOW Awards Asia 2019, in which entries can be made.

B.Submitting entries for the judging process

Once logged in to your account, there are three steps involved in submitting an entry for the judging process

STEP-1. Registering an entry and seeking client approval
STEP-2. Submitting the Entry Document
STEP-3. Making Payment for Entries

Step 1. Registering an entry and seeking client approval

Select the category in which an entry needs to be made, and enter the basic details as per the form about the entry in order to register the entry.

  • Once an entry is registered, a system generated e-mail will be sent to the Client’s (in the case of event campaigns) email provided by the entrant, seeking approval on the entry (in case where a client is not involved, key in your own details)
  • Each WOW Award Asia entry needs a mandatory approval from the client (wherever an event is executed for an external client) through a ‘reply mail’ from the client’s official e-mail address.
  • The process of creating the Entry Document can begin simultaneously. However, the client approval for all entries should come in before the deadline for entry submission.

Note: In the case the applicant is the owner of the property / activity being entered, and there is no relevant ‘client’, please repeat applicant details as client. In the case of an IP, applicants are encouraged to include a ‘sponsor’ / ‘key partner’ in the IP as the ‘client’.

Tip: Register all the entries as early as possible so as to activate the ‘client approval’ ‘reference acknowledgment’ process. This will allow you to focus on submitting the entry documents for all the entries that have been registered

Step 2. Submitting the Entry Document

  • This option will be available only after an entry has been registered under a particular category.
  • The entry document seeks information on the event/campaign/body of work, under four key aspects. These aspects differ across category segments.
  • 4 images and 2 video links can also be uploaded to support the entry. The images have to be under 1 mb/each.
  • Creation of this document can be an ongoing process. Changes and additions can be saved on this page until the entrant is satisfied to ‘Submit’ the document.
  • The entry document must be submitted before the deadline. Once submitted, the entry cannot be withdrawn or appended.
  • The process of ‘Making Payment’ can begin simultaneously, as entries are registered.

Tip: This is the document that the entry will be judged on. An entrant can log in and save changes as many times as he/she wishes, so do not hesitate to be extremely sure before you hit the ‘Submit’ button.
