The HEAVENT AWARDS co-organized by HEAVENT and the NEWS EVENEMENT(S) reward the most memorable events of the past year. Exceptionally, due to the pandemic and following the cancellations of the 2020 and 2021 editions, this 2022 edition covers the years 2019, 2020 and 2021: the face-to-face, digital and hybrid events that took place from January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2021. The Heavent Awards represent a unique opportunity to give a strong visibility to the most stunning events.

For this 2022 edition, a simplified procedure in 4 steps is proposed:

1 / Fill in your application form (access to the form at the bottom of this page: APPLY)

The online registrations are open from 20 January 2022 to 2 March 2022. Any company, agency, organizer of trade fairs and congresses having produced in 2019, 2020 or 2021* an event in one of the 8 categories mentioned below can apply. *(event that took place between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2021)

You must describe your project (one separate entry for each application) by answering the questions and provide us with a first 2-minutes video. The same entry can be presented in 2 categories maximum.

NB: the application will be validated upon receipt of payment of the participation fee and provided that the entry file is duly completed.

2 / Discover the nominees mid-March

The partner associations, Heavent, the News Evenement(s) and some members of the jury select for each of the categories 3 to 7 finalists, depending on the number of applications per category. The nominated agencies will be informed by email mid-March.

For each nominated project, the candidates will then have to send a second shorter video (30 sec maximum). Thus, 2 videos to provide: 2 minutes for the jury and 30 seconds for broadcast during the awards ceremony.

3 / Prepare your jury presentation

For each shortlisted entry, the candidates (agency and client) will have to present together their project live in front of the jury on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 April in Cannes.
The presentations will be held over the two days and will be followed by a deliberation session of the jury. Their votes represent 60% of the final score.

4 / Attend the awards ceremony

It will take place Thursday evening, 21 April 2022, at the Palais des Festivals et Congrès of Cannes in the “Grand Auditorium”: A ceremony expected by the entire sector, with a presentation of all nominated projects and an interactive vote of the invited audience. These votes represent 40% of the final score.
