Clear the calendars for September, because B&T‘s new Best of the Best awards program is shaping up to be one of our most exciting events yet.
Presented by Finecast, Best of the Best will bring something unique to this year’s awards season. While most awards focus on the work of an agency as a whole, Best of the Best will celebrate the immense talent on show in every area of advertising.
From casting agents to content producers, finance to film directors and project managers to PRs, we want to showcase the brightest talents across the whole industry.
Our Best of the Best awards will also be celebrating the people who continue to do the most, with categories for mentors and social change-makers.
You can find a breakdown of all the different categories here, along with a downloadable file outlining the full submission criteria.
Like our 30 Under 30 Awards, we’ll be having a People’s Choice round after entries close, where you can vote for the entrant who you think is most deserving.
Over here at B&T, we’ll be selecting two very special individuals to present with a Lifetime Achievement Award and a Grand Prix: Adlander Of The Year.
Does all this tickle your fancy? It should!
The awards will be judged by an exclusive panel of the industry’s most esteemed execs, while also creating a space for new business opportunities and network expansion.
Perhaps most importantly, it is also a prime opportunity to learn from some of the movers and shakers revolutionising the industry.
Come on, you know you want to apply! To start your entry, head on over HERE.
