The One Show utilizes a quarterly entry system, offering four separate submission periods. This gives entrants the opportunity to submit work while it is first to market and top of mind. Our judges will view and judge the work on an ongoing basis by quarter, allowing them to view work in smaller batches and affording them more time to consider each piece.Please note that since certain Design, Direct Marketing, and Print & Outdoor categories allow for physical material submissions, all work submitted in these categories will be judged during our in-person judging process in March 2018. Penta Pencil entries are accepted in all quarters, but will be judged after the final deadline.
