RULES & REGULATIONS

 
You may only enter the exact same piece into a maximum of three different categories per discipline.

One time advertisements are eligible, but you will be required to submit client contact information. This information will be used to verify the ad if it is questioned during the judging process.


Since 2012, The One Show has adopted the following category restrictions:
  1. If entering into Innovation, the same entry may not be entered into Experiential Advertising.

  2. If entering into Experiential Advertising, the same entry may not be entered into Innovation.

From 2010 and onwards, The One Show has adopted the following rules:

It is our goal to guard against the entering of fake ads. Please comply with the following rules when entering.
  1. If an entry has run once, a client contact name, phone number and email address must be provided with the entry.

  2. The Executive Creative Director must sign off on all entries. The required form will be automatically generated through our online system. It must be signed and uploaded.*
*Note: If you have submitted all of your entries online, please upload your Executive Approval Form through our online system.

NON-COMPLIANCE
The One Club reserves the right to review all entries questioned during the judging process. Not complying with the rules and/or attempting to enter a fraudulent advertisement will result in the following consequences:
  1. An agency, the regional office of an agency network, or the independent agency that enters an ad made for nonexistent clients, or made and run without a client’s approval, will be banned from entering The One Show for 5 years.

  2. The team credited on the fake ad will be banned from entering The One Show for 5 years.

  3. An agency, the regional office of an agency network, or the independent agency that enters an ad that has run once, on late night TV, or has only run because the agency produced a single ad and paid to run it themselves, will be banned from entering The One Show for 3 years.*
*Note: The One Club reserves the right to review ‘late-night, ran-once’ and launch versions, at The One Club’s discretion. If it is determined that the ad was created expressly for award show entry, the penalty will hold.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
