What makes the PHNX Awards different?

We’ve designed the PHNX to be open, accessible and very easy to enter, with only the essential number of categories and a jury with a diverse range of skills and opinions. Above all, our aim is to support and showcase the year’s best work in a spirit of generosity, optimism and unity.

What can I enter?

Film, print, radio, activations, PR case studies, design... all the main creative disciplines.

The competition is open to advertising agencies, PR agencies, film production companies, media agencies, design studios, photographers, freelance creatives and advertisers worldwide.

To ensure accessibility (while paying the talented people who work with us to keep the PHNX flying) the competition is free to enter, with a fee of just 199 euros per entry ONLY IF THE ENTRY IS SHORTLISTED

What do I win?

There will be Gold, Silver and Bronze winners, as well as six Grand Prix winners. The trophies will be virtual, but we’ll sing your praises on the heavily-trafficked AdForum site and among our extensive press community. Not to mention in an online celebration on May 16th.


Entries must have been approved by a client and broadcast, published or taken place between March 2023 and May 2024.


The PHNX Awards are craft-focused. The six main areas are Film, Print, Strategy & Technique, Digital, Design and Good Causes, with sub-categories for each. See a full list of the 26 categories here.

Who is on the jury?

Our jury is open to talents, business leaders and thinkers from every corner of the creative world, a mixture you won’t find on any other jury. From top creatives to those running the world’s leading brands, if they have valid experience they have a place. Find an update here.
