The Top 10 Things You Need to Know About Screening
IAB MIXX Awards Entries

  1. The IAB MIXX Awards are about creativity AND impact. Pay equal attention to information in the written briefs, the creative samples, and the case study videos.
     
  2. You are required to review and score a minimum 35 entries.
     
  3. The system will alert you when you have reach this requirement. At this time, you will have the option to finalize your scores and complete your review or continue to score additional entries. If you opt to score more than 35 entries, you will be able to finalize your scores and complete your review at any time.
     
  4. Spread your review over several days. Although you can complete your review in one 5-7 hour session, we don’t recommend it. Instead, we suggest that you do your review over several log-in sessions during the screening period (July 10-26).
     
  5. This phase of the judging is done entirely online. As long as you have a computer and internet connection, you can do your review at any time and from anywhere during the July 10-26 screening period.  Many of the case study videos require Adobe Flash. You can’t do your review on iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.
     
  6. Entrants can submit a campaign into as many categories as applicable so be sure you review it in the context of the specified category. Remember: If you’ve seen an entry before, it’s likely because it was entered in more than one category.
     
  7. The online system should prevent you from seeing work in which your company was involved (provided your company is listed in the entry form). However, should you get an entry that you were involved in, please use the “Report a Conflict” feature to skip the entry.
     
  8. Although we go to great lengths to ensure the system and the links provided by entrants are working properly, technical issues do happen. If you have trouble accessing a written brief or the links provided to view creative samples, please use the “Report a Problem” feature. This will allow you to skip the entry and alert us to the issue.
     
  9. Start early. Don’t miss your chance to see all the great work.
     
  10. Please see the “IAB MIXX Awards Screening Committee Instructions” email for login information, details on scoring procedures, and criteria for evaluation.
