SERIES MANIA’S CREATIVE CAMPAIGN AWARD is an award given by Series Mania Forum to reward a series’ promotional campaign to the general public.   

This new initiative responds to the need for broadcasters and platforms, faced with the dizzying number of series available each week, to create innovative and unique marketing tools so that series are noticed and have every chance of meeting their audience.

All promotional campaigns for the launch of a new series or a new season of an existing series are eligible (full eligibility requirements are available below). 

The company with the best creative campaign will be awarded a prize at Series Mania Forum 2023 (21 March > 23 March). The selection will be made by Series Mania Festival team and a qualified committee of audiovisual and marketing professionals.

The best projects submitted will also be featured in Series Mania Forum conference program.
