About eurobest – The European Festival of Creativity
Since it was founded in 1988 the eurobest Festival has been Europe’s leading competition for the creative sector and complements the international advertising festival in Cannes. Every year the coveted eurobest awards are given in 18 categories. The prizes were initially awarded annually in London. This changed in 2008, when the purely creative award became a three-day festival with the award ceremony as its highlight.
