Now in its second year, shots Awards The Americas celebrates and rewards truly exceptional creative work from the Americas, as well as showcasing some of the most successful companies and people in the industry from that region.

2021 will see a new approach for the shots Awards, with a series of new categories introduced, a new points-based system for established categories, as well as a change in the way in which the Awards are judged, with the addition of jury heads across the categories, more of which below.

Until 22 January 2021, there is an early bird discount on entries, and for those entering four or more pieces of work, there is a further reduction per entry.

Award-winning production company Nexus Studios has produced this year's campaign film, due for release in early January 2021, which has fun with what's at the core of the awards; inspirational ideas.

As mentioned above, the Americas 2021 edition of the shots Awards will see eight separate juries, each with its own jury head, oversee the winning work, from the creation of the initial shortlist to the decision, after online deliberation, on the eventual winners. Our esteemed international judging panel will be revealed next month. 

Winners of the categories on this page will be decided on a points-based system whereby each piece of work that picks up anything from a shortlist place to a gold award, will receive the relevant points with winners being those campaigns/companies/people accumulating the most points over the course of the event.
