B&T Awards 2016 – Judges Announced!

B&T Awards 2016 – Judges Announced!

Another year, another fabulous B&T Awards event. And this year, we’re pulling out all the stops. Held not at the Casino at Sydney Town Hall, with FIVE new categories and a hot swag of judges, this is the industry event of the year.

And you’ve only got until next Friday, August 5 at 5pm to enter on time. Late entries extend until August 12 and incur a late fee.

Our judges this year are 100 per cent non-agency, so there’s no conflict of interest for entering agencies, and come from a range of diverse companies such as Subaru, Westpac, Guzman y Gomez, Foxtel, Pacific Magazines, PWC, Stan, Airbnb, and Sydney Opera House.

And there’s still more to come! Another 10 judges are yet to be announced, so stay tuned.

You can enter the awards here, and buy tickets here, with all the criteria you could possibly need found here.

And if you’re loving all the B&T Awards goss, you can read what judges are looking for in a winning entry here, see what the worst mistakes are in previous entries right here, and check out how one agency won last year just here.
