An APEX award symbolises the achievement of performance excellence by communications campaigns in an industry that is constantly refining and redefining creativity. Participation in the competition is open to communicators in corporate, non-profit and independent settings.

The 2014 installment of the Awards saw almost 2,100 entries vying for 100 APEX Grand Awards to honour outstanding achievements as well as 832 APEX Awards of Excellence in 122 individual categories. The works that were eligible for judging were those that were produced or dated in 2013.
