YDA Entry Details

How it works


As we judge all submissions based upon predominantly creative criteria (i.e. the look and feel of your work), we do not require much background information from you to accept your submission.
In fact, it shouldn't take you more than 10-15 minutes per submission to enter the awards.



The fee, per agency, is $250 per submission.

You can pay online by credit/debit card or PayPal. Invoices are not allowed. After entering online you will receive an automated email confirmation with full details.
