Welcome to the 2019 Mobius Awards competitions!
Welcome to Mobius Awards, now celebrating our 49th year. Mobius Awards is an international competition that recognizes outstanding advertising, design and creativity. For decades, we have had a front-row view as advertising and package design have changed and have been the first to see frontline trends emerge, including new advertising platforms. This year, we are excited to introduce the Mobius Awards Cannabis Advertising & Package Design competition, which responds to a new, exciting area of advertising. Mobius Cannabis joins Mobius Advertising, Mobius Package Design and Mobius Student.
Competition awards include First-Place Mobius statuette, Certificate for Outstanding Creativity, Spec Advertising Certificate, Student Certificate. Best of Show (Grand Prix Nominee) and Best of Show (Grand Prix) are selected from Mobius Awards First-Place winners.
The Mobius Awards gold statuette is easily recognized by its Mobius strip shape, a symbol of an ongoing and never-ending exchange of thoughts and ideas. The statuette is proudly displayed in the offices of some of the best agencies, production companies and design firms in the world. In the past 10 years, more than 600 statuettes have been awarded. We are thrilled that the statuette has made many appearances in television and film productions seem around the world.
Winners are selected by an international jury. Each entry is judged on its individual merits, including effectiveness and creativity. The judging outcome can result in multiple First Place Mobius and/or Second Place Certificate winners or no winners in any category or media type. It also means that no Best of Show is awarded in a medium if no winner in that group stands out from other winners.
Mobius Awards headquarters have been in Los Angeles, California, since 2001 under the leadership of
Lee W. Gluckman Jr., Chairman.
Mobius Awards dates to 1971, when it was founded in Chicago as The U.S. Television & Radio Commercials Festival. At first, the festival accepted Television and Radio advertising only. In 1986, the name changed to The Mobius Awards, still only recognizing Television and Radio. Then Print advertising and Package Design were introduced in 1990. Next came a Student division, and now in 2019, we are introducing Mobius Awards Cannabis.
