The MIXX Awards Europe recognise and celebrate the best digital advertising campaigns in Europe. All European campaigns that have won a digital award in a national or international award competition are invited to participate.

The jury will be looking for high quality campaigns that meet the expectations of the industry. With 13 categories, the competition provides advertising practitioners with the opportunity to gain recognition for their work as well as inspire the community. I look forward to working with the 2019 Jury to review all of the great work and award the winners in Warsaw on 4-5 June.”
