Is your entry for B&T’s inaugural Best of the Best awards still in progress? Well, get those fingers typing a helluva lot faster, because you’ve only got one more day to submit it!
The day we’ve been warning you about for weeks is almost here, and it’s time to get your act together. Head on over HERE and start your submission. On-time entries for Best of the Best will be accepted until 5pm (AEST) on Friday 25 June.
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 or company as a whole, Best of the Best will celebrate the immense individual talent on show in every area of advertising, marketing and media.
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 (we even revealed some of them yesterday), 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.
