Awards Ceremony: January 2024

let's talk hardware.

Not to mention the coveted Best in Show and People's Choice awards. New this year are Merit Awards, given to those entries that just barely missed the podium. How does it work? First, the work is judged by a panel of global industry titans. Then finalists are announced. Finally, trophies are awarded at the Awards Ceremony. It's important to note that work is judged against industry standards—not against other entries in the same category. For that reason, there can be three golds in one category, and none in another. At The One Awards, every winner is a world-class creative achievement.
