Submission Deadline Extended! – The One Awards 2022

Welcome to the club!

 The One Awards is going Country Club this year, but this isn’t your stuffy exclusive club, it’s a club for everyone! So bust out your sweater vests and checkered pants, because this year we are celebrating the greater SD creative community by coming together as One Club. 

Submissions Now Open! We are officially calling for entries to this year’s One Awards!  Year after year, we continue to be inspired by excellence of the work originated by Southern California and the Tijuana creative communities. The event is open to agencies, brands, freelancers, production companies, students, and non-profit organizations of all sizes. Entries into the show will be judged by creative leaders from around the country with winners from across 80 categories taking home gold, silver or bronze. Not to mention the coveted Best in Show and People’s Choice awards.

New this year are Merit Awards, given to those entries that just barely missed the podium. How does it work? First, the work is judged by a panel of global industry titans. Then finalists are announced. Finally, trophies are awarded at the Awards Ceremony. It’s important to note that work is judged against industry standards—not against other entries in the same category. For that reason, there can be three golds in one category, and none in another. At The One Awards, every winner is a world-class creative achievement.

Who can enter:

Open to agencies, design studios, production companies, organizations, freelancers, consumer brands, universities, and non- profits of all sizes from San Diego, Tijuana, Orange County, and Los Angeles. This year’s event includes more categories, more winners, new trophies, packaged pricing, and a reduced entry fee. You’re a winner already!
