CHARITY OF THE YEAR

Around 80% of classified disabilities in the UK are ‘hidden’. The list is vast; there are over 900 and they include some we all know and others we don’t; from cancer and diabetes, to MS and autism - to endometriosis and dysautonomia. Why now?

 

  • Cases of non-visible disabilities have risen by two-thirds in the last five years, according to 2023 data. The biggest rise was within mental illnesses.

  • Of the 16 million disabled in the UK, 80% have a hidden disability.

  • Over 1 in 10 children have a disability, with the vast majority hidden. 

  • Diagnosis takes longer for hidden disabilities, often underappreciated even by medical professionals.

WHAT IS THE CREATIVE SHOOTOUT

It’s the ultimate definition of creativity for good, dialled up to the max in a live show format. With the UK’s best any discipline creative agencies (whether integrated, advertising, PR, digital, social, brand, experiential, or other) battling it out to solve a problem facing a charity, through their creative might.

The next Live Final on January 30th 2025 will welcome eight agency teams to take the stage in front of a live audience at BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, and respond to a brief that they’ve had just four hours prep time on, earlier in the day. Each agency team then has just eight minutes to pitch their creative thinking to the judges and a live audience of hundreds. It’s a night of creativity, drama and high emotion. 

 

The winning agency will then go on to stage their campaign for the charity later in 2025, fuelled by a generous prize fund, and a range of national media partners. 

There’s no tougher or more rewarding creative challenge out there. Just ask last year’s winner’s, advertising agency MullenLowe!
