We’re kicking off the working week with a big PSA … that’s right, the first lot of finalists for this year’s B&T Awards, presented by YouTube, are ready to be revealed!
Check out part one of the B&T Awards shortlist below to see if you made the cut, and if the category/categories that you entered ain’t listed, keep an eye out for part two tomorrow.
A big congrats to all the finalists for this year’s awards! Please double-check how your company name is listed on the shortlist and advise if any changes are needed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com no later than Friday 8 October, as this is how they’ll appear in the awards presentation and on trophies (if you’re lucky enough to win one, of course).
We’ll be dropping a line to all shortlisted entrants about the next round of judging. Yes, that’s right – finalists will have to prove their worth once again by participating in a (virtual) live judging day, sponsored by Twitch, on Monday 11 October.
B&T would like to give a massive shout to everyone who entered our awards this year. The judges had the exceptionally difficult task of curating this list of finalists from a very high calibre of entries. It never gets easier!
If you didn’t make the list, we would still love to celebrate with you on the night and we’re already excited to receive your entry in 2022!
This year’s B&T Awards will take place on Friday 12 November at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney. You can secure your spot now HERE and then get your glad rags ready to celebrate what has been another year of brilliant work by adland!
B&T can’t wait to welcome guests to the Hordern Pavilion for a COVID-safe event! Adhering to the current NSW Public Health Order, all guests are to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or NSW Health-approved vaccination exemption upon entry to the venue.
Kudos to all of our sponsors for this year’s B&T Awards. We wouldn’t be able to put on the industry’s favourite event without your support!

PLEASE NOTE: COVID-19 has clearly been good for starting an agency!
