Introduced in 2003 and regularly conducted every year since, Hürriyet’s Kırmızı (Red) annual awards are handed out to recognize and reward success on the part of advertisers, agencies, and individuals involved in the advertising industry and also to encourage creativity in press advertising. The Kırmızı Awards competition is unique in Turkey because its honors were originally handed out only for newspaper and magazine ads. In 2010 Kırmızı Awards introduced yet another first in Turkey with the launch of its “Kırmızı Region” series of awards for which only agencies located outside İstanbul may compete. This series’ aim is to discover and reward excellence in local advertising in towns and cities all over Turkey. The number of competition classes was increased to three this year with the addition of “Kırmızı Digital”. In the thirteenth round of the Kırmızı Awards in 2016, awards were handed out to winners in 83 categories of the three classes.
