The first ever World Trailer Awards which honours the best creatives who market the best entertainment from around the globe is still open for entries.

The awards, which celebrate outstanding entertainment marketing across cinema, TV (broadcast & cable), gaming, podcast & radio, streaming services, and social media, is calling for applicants to get their entries in by January 31st 2022.

Serving as a new standard of excellence for the world’s entertainment marketing industry, the World Trailer Awards shines a spotlight on trailers and creative marketing concepts that bring entertainment products to life, delivering audiences and driving revenues for the global entertainment industry.

Evelyn Watters, Executive Director of World Trailer Awards, said: “We’re thrilled to applaud the vitality and energy of these passionate creators; true artists of their craft who largely go unrecognised in credits but are pivotal in attracting and delivering audiences. Turning the spotlight on these global creators is incredibly important to instil a deeper appreciation for their work, enable cross-sector collaborations and open the window for future marketing initiatives and concepts to move the industry forward.”

The World Trailer Awards judging panel brings together the world’s most influential voices across the full global entertainment arena, who will select the best submissions in 30+ categories, including Best Trailer, Best Audio Trailer, Best Poster, Best Motion Poster, Best Story, Best Experiential Marketing, Best Online Advertising, Best Outdoor Advertising, and Best Print Advertising for entries from Cinema, TV (Broadcast/Cable), Gaming, Podcast & Radio, Streaming Services and Social Media.

One such judge, Tim Platt (Head of Marketing & Broadcast Partnerships, British Film Institute), said: “Trailers are still the number one asset for any film campaign, your most powerful way to draw in audiences, and alongside traditional in cinema advertising, the ever-increasing digital channels give marketeers the freedom to re-purpose and re-format their trailers to reach a worldwide audience.”

Winners from the seven regions (Africa, Asia, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East & North Africa and North America) will be selected by the judges for their recognition in delivering innovation and creativity, with a focus on creating an exceptional level of engagement.

Regional winners will advance to the world finals, with the World Trailer Awards winners announced and celebrated in February 2022 in awards ceremonies live from the Loule Theatre in the Algarve (Portugal).
