The 6th Balticbest Festival of Creativity will take place in Tallinn, Estonia on August 30, 2019.

Balticbest is a one-day boutique festival of creativity, consisting of a conference, networking breaks and award ceremony:

2019 marks Balticbest’s expansion beyond Baltic borders by inviting participants from all small European countries with population under 5 million.

Small countries share similar challenges: small budgets, small agency teams, promotion-oriented marketing campaigns. We believe it is fair to compete against agencies from similar markets, bearing in mind, small countries can produce really BIG IDEAS.

All Balticbest 2019 Gold and Grand Prix winning entries will be submitted to EPICA and Eurobest festivals free of charge. Meaning winners will be granted with an entry to three festivals for the price of one.

All Grand Prix and category winners (Gold, Silver and Bronze) will receive winners’ diplomas at Balticbest 2019 Award Gala on August 30, 2019 in the Vaba Lava. Get your ticket to the event here: Balticbest 2019 tickets.

The purpose of the Balticbest award competition is to reward outstanding creativity. Entries will be judged by international jury on the originality of the creative ideas and on the quality of their execution.
