PSA: The 2020 B&T Awards are closing in exactly one week, people (i.e. next Friday August 14).
If you haven’t submitted your entry yet, we ask: what the heck are you waiting for?
Provided the aliens don’t turn up and enslave us all, the B&T Awards are going ahead come hell or high water. We truly hope in-person, but if not, don’t you worry – we’ve got a back-up plan (we always have a plan B!)
There’s no denying 2020 has been a bit shit, and we’re seemingly no closer to clarity today than we were in March.
However! We know you all have been busy creating some kick-ass work, even if it is in a dark room all alone. That’s why despite the year it’s been, we are forging ahead with the B&T Awards to celebrate YOU, dear adland.
With entries closing NEXT FRIDAY, ENTER NOW.

Some handy tips for submission:
•All categories are submitted in PDF doc so think beyond plain text, and be as creative as possible with your entries. But bear in mind that judges will be reviewing them digitally so legibility is key when it comes designing the layout and choice of font.
•Each PDF doc submission has a file size limit of 100Mb, double check your file size before uploading.
•Stick to the word limit and be concise. Use sub-headings to match each point within the criteria.
•As a part of your B&T Awards Hub showcase, we’re asking for a hero board – this is a visual summary of your entry on a single page. Please note that judges will not score this, it is purely used as the main image of your showcase.
