Thinkbox TV Planning Awards 2021

Entries now open.

The Thinkbox TV Planning Awards are about celebrating brilliantly effective uses of TV and recognising the people behind them. Brilliant planning - that delivers brand and business benefits - lies at the heart of all successful advertising, and these awards are about finding and recognising the most innovative and successful TV activity, whether that be as part of a multi-media advertising campaign or simply shining on its own. 

Here you can find out about this year’s awards categories and navigate to our TV Planning Awards website where you can find lots of other useful info including specific criteria and entry requirements.

You must register your details in order to submit an entry. 

This year we are launching a brand new award, TV Planning Agency of the Year - the perfect chance to celebrate your team and whole agency’s TV planning prowess.
