2019 Transform Awards Asia-Pacific open for entries


One of the most rewarding things to see in Transform magazine is a brand project that takes into account all the various touchpoints, platforms and media that could contribute to a better communication of a brand’s positioning and purpose. At last year’s Transform Awards Asia-Pacific, that was true of the majority of projects considered by the judges.

The programme has celebrated excellence in rebranding and brand development across the Asia-Pacific region. This year’s awards will be no different in honouring the best in brand strategy for the sixth time. Entries are now accepted into the 2019 Transform Awards Asia-Pacific.

Categories include ‘Best localisation of an international brand,’ ‘Best creative strategy,’ ‘Best brand experience’ and ‘Best copy style or tone of voice,’ among others. Previous winners include Hyundai, Coca-Cola, HSBC, Amnesty International, Nomura, the Hong Kong Ballet, Pizza Hut and Alibaba.

Brittany Golob, publishing editor of Transform magazine, says, “Every winner at the Transform Awards should be proud of their excellent work as they have truly set the benchmark for rebranding and brand development across the Asia-Pacific region. We’re proud to celebrate the best in branding every year and we wish the best of luck to this year’s entrants.”

Entries are accepted until 26 July. If received by 31 May, your entries are eligible for a $100 discount. If entered by 28 June, you will receive your fifth entry free. Contact Jessica Dunmall or +44(0)20 3950 5356 for more information. Last year’s winners can be found here.
