The One Show is the world's most prestigious awards show recognizing the best creative work in advertising, interactive, design and branded entertainment. The brightest creative minds from advertising agencies, digital agencies, design agencies, production companies, consumer brands and non-profit organizations from around the world enter every year.

The 2019 winners will be announced on two nights of The One Show during The One Club for Creativity's Creative Week, to be held May 6–10, 2019, in New York City. Creative Week is the preeminent festival showcasing the intersection of advertising, innovation and creative thinking. In addition to two nights of The One Show, Creative Week also includes the ADC Annual Awards, the dynamic Young Ones Education Festival, inspiring sessions with some of the biggest names in the industry at the Creative Summit, and the exclusive Executive Creative Summit, open to a limited number of top-level leaders (founders, CCOs and managing partners).

The One Show


The One Show utilizes three separate submission periods. This gives entrants the opportunity to submit work while it is first to market and top of mind. Our judges will view and judge the work on an ongoing basis by entry period, allowing them to view work in smaller batches and affording them more time to consider each piece.

Please note that since certain Design and Print & Outdoor categories allow for physical material submissions, all work submitted in these categories will be judged during our in-person judging process in March 2019. Cultural Driver, Green Pencil, and Penta Pencil entries are accepted throughout, but will be judged after the final deadline.
