We’ve been kind enough to extend the entry deadline for our inaugural Best of the Best awards, and now it’s time to do your bit by submitting before the gate closes!
You’ve only got until 5pm (AEST) on Wednesday 7 July (that’s tomorrow) to submit your entry to the new awards program. Click HERE and make it count!
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.
And believe us when we say that even Formula One racing star Daniel Ricciardo is pitting himself against adland’s best and brightest individuals!
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 last month), 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.
