It is time to use the last opportunity to submit your entry for the Effie Awards Ukraine 2023 contest. This year, the contest program has significantly expanded to include 81 categories. The submission period has also been extended. In addition to the current contest period (February 24, 2022 – September 30, 2023, for the Sustained Success category – from 2020 or earlier), entries can also be submitted within the pre-war period: January 1, 2021 – February 23, 2022 for projects implemented in Ukraine before the full-scale invasion. These entries will be evaluated separately by the jury members from those implemented after the full-scale invasion.
