Anticipation is building ahead of tonight’s gala awards ceremony as the B&T Awards celebrates its seventh outing with the biggest field of entrants across its expanded 26 categories.

A record number of entries were received again this year and two new categories were added to the line-up, one for media and one celebrating the best of social media.

The B&T Awards have made a name for themselves as being 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.

All other awards have remained unchanged.

The event itself will be held at Sydney’s Star City Casino and a sell out crowd of more than 800 guests are expected to brave the thunderstorms predicted for the evening.
