Financial advertising gongs, The Midas Awards, are open for entries. The only international competition recognising excellence in financial advertising on a global scale has operated since 2001 and honours creative work in banking, brokerage, insurance, mutual fund, credit card, real estate, accounting, and consulting industries.
Entries are invited in four specific categories: Consumer & Business-to-Business Communications, Corporate Communications, Craft & Technique, and Best Use of Medium.
In 2010, commemorating the 10 year anniversary of the competition, the awards announced the creation of the Midas Report, an annual report that recognises the most successful companies in the financial advertising and marketing communications industry. The report uses a creative ranking system based on points earned within the Midas Awards competition.
The Midas Grand Jury is comprised of client and agency leaders from the creative and marketing disciplines, as well as internationally recognised experts in financial policy and communications.
Deadline for entry is 21 September 2012. Entry details and competition rules and regulations can be found on the Midas website.
