The 2013 B&T Awards have been launched and they are bigger and better than ever, with two new categories, one for media and one celebrating the best of social media.
Entries are now open for the most robust, rigorous and prestigious agency awards in Australia, with judging taking place over two rounds, with finalists in the agency, marketing team and employer of the year categories invited to present to a live panel of expert judges.
A new category this year is the Best Use of Social Media, which gives a voice to this burgeoning section of the industry as brands look to transform their online profiles.
Another change is the introduction of a Media Agency Network of the Year category, to showcase the strongest agencies in multiple states, while the Media Agency category will be split into NSW, Victoria and other states and territories highlighting the work of individual offices.
However, all the other categories remain unchanged.
Last year saw a record number of entries, with more than 300 looked at by 70 judges. See highlights of last year's awards here.
This year the industry’s night of nights will be held at The Star Casino complex on Friday, November 22, with tickets going online in the coming weeks.
Entries for the awards close on August 16, with the assessed period stretching from September 1. 2012, to August 31, 2013, and you can download the application pack by clicking here.
