New Changes This Year:

Separating Disciplines

This year we are separating some of our more expansive disciplines to allow different kinds of work to shine. This includes PRINT & OUTDOOR being split into PRINT and OUT OF HOME. Learn More

Bringing Disciplines Together

Conversely, some disciplines just work better together. This year we will be streamlining certain disciplines to make both entering and judging your work even easier. For example, our SOCIAL INFLUENCER discipline is now being merged with our SOCIAL MEDIA discipline. Learn More

More Flexibility With Campaigns

Remember when campaigns had to be 3–5 elements, leaving two-piece or six-piece campaigns in award show limbo? This year The One Show will be giving you much more flexibility with the number of elements a campaign can have. Learn More

Change Your Destiny. Enter Now.

Playing off the notion that a little bit of luck can help a piece of creative work stand out from all the great competition, Lanfranco & Cordova, New York and Lima, has enlisted the mystical services of an actual Peruvian shaman in the entertaining new integrated campaign to promote The One Show 2020 call for entries.

The “Change Your Destiny” campaign kicks off with “Cleofe, The Shaman”, featuring Cleofe, a real shaman from Peru who blesses creative work in order to give it some extra good luck before it is entered in The One Show.
