Entries are being sought for the annual Cream Awards which honour the best design, advertising and marketing throughout the Midlands, East South West and Wales.
Judged by a panel of industry experts, the winners will be announced at a black-tie awards presentation at the MacDonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham on November 2.
Last year the event was attended by 300 representatives of the sector at the ICC.
Katy Archer, editor of industry publication Adline, said: "We were delighted to receive over 400 entries last year. We're hoping for a similar level of interest and enthusiasm."
Among the top regional performers at the Birmingham Post-backed event last year, were McCann Erickson Birmingham, Golley Slater in Birmingham and Cardiff, Birmingham-based Kerrang! 105.2, Big Communications in Leicester and Meriden's Rees Bradley Hepburn.
