Longhand is an advertising awards show based in India that firmly stands against the belief that “long copy is dead.” In its 3rd year, the contest features several briefs and judges from both the UK and India. As you might guess, the judging of the contest is based on the craft of the written word rather than stunning visuals.
This year’s clients are National Geographic, Concern India, and Zee Media Corporation Limited. Winning work gets paid and has the chance to run in the client’s campaign. At the very least, submitting is a chance to use an oft forgotten but incredibly important tool in the writer’s arsenal.
If you need inspiration, here’s what made the cut in 2013.
Submissions are due May 31st.
Check out their promotional posters below. You can click each image for a larger version.
A while back, we mentioned the One Show Young Ones student award show as a good way to exercise your advertising brain. If you’re looking to get into the creative game, the D&AD New Blood awards are also a great chance to show off your work. Although submissions opened in February, you can submit up until March 19th – just be wary of the different time zone. Check out the briefs here, and good luck to everyone chasing a Pencil!
Oh, and here’s their way of explaining why you should enter.

The One Show professional deadline is coming up on January 31st, but for all the young copywriters and art directors out there, the One Show Young Ones Competition is accepting entries until March 7th.
There are two briefs this year. The first is for Organic, a fashion brand by John Patrick. The second is an open call for saving the arts. The brief says you can choose (or create) any brand or cause that fits the bill. You can download both creative briefs here.
Best of luck to all participants!
