Please note that a completed entry means that you have reached the step where you have selected either the online or offline payment option and submitted your request. This does not necessarily mean you have already paid, since you may have selected offline payment.

Are there paper entry forms to fill out?

Will you send my entry back to me after the awards judging?
Unfortunately The One Club for Creativity cannot return entries, due to the high volume of submissions we receive.

For my annual awards print entries, can I send a digital image along with my printed piece, just in case the judges want to see it projected as well?
You are required to upload a digital file. This is used for reference purposes and may be used for press and archive material, should the piece win. However, you MUST also send flat art for all advertising and design categories, as the physical piece is what is judged. If the flat art is intended to be judged in different categories, then each must have its own Entry Label and you must pay two fees.

How will I know if I won any awards?
Winners and other entrants will be notified in April 2019 via email.


If I send my package today but it gets to you after the deadline do I still have to pay a late fee?
