The 2024 PHNX Awards are open for entries until April 5 – and entry is free until the work is shortlisted. Entrants only incur a charge (€199) if their work makes it through to the final selection. This makes the PHNX one of the world’s most accessible awards, encouraging the participation of young talents and indie agencies alongside big industry names.

But the PHNX is unique for another reason: its diverse jury of creatives, industry leaders, marketers, strategists, journalists and consultants is the only one of its kind. The result for entrants is great feedback from the community, plus the chance of press coverage. We’re now inviting agencies, freelancers, brands and production companies to enter.

Launched in the heart of lockdown in 2020, the PHNX originally rose to recognize the vital role creativity plays in society. Its success led to the emergence of a young player in the global awards landscape, with a mission to prove that nothing can keep creativity down.

This year there are 26 categories under five themes: Film; Print; Strategy & Technique; Digital; Design; Good Causes. Like the number of categories, the entry process has been streamlined and simplified.

The organizers stressed that “as always, our aim of the PHNX is to celebrate the people behind the best work in a spirit of unity and generosity.”

Philippe Paget, AdForum CEO and founder of the PHNX added: “Creativity was my touchstone when I launched PHNX Awards in a period when everyone thought awards were inappropriate. Then, as now, I knew it was vital to recognize creativity: the unfair advantage that stirs adversity into the pot with imagination and comes up with magic.”

Entries are open until April 5 and the shortlist will be published on April 24. Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be chosen by May 5. Five Grand Juries will then vote on the Grand Prix candidates. Winners will be honored during an online celebration on May 16.
