Marketing Week Awards 2016 – Shortlist announced

Drum roll please! Ladies and gentleman, we give you the shortlist for the 2016 Marketing Week Awards. Thanks to all those entered the awards this year – the calibre of entries was fantastic and every one of the brands, agencies and marketers on the list should be proud of their achievements. Congratulations, you represent the best of the marketing industry.

Roundhouse

There is one other award you will have to wait a little longer to see the shortlist for – The Visionary Marketer of the Year award in partnership with Adobe.

Each year, Marketing Week determines who are the Vision 100 – the most visionary marketers around – and we are rewarding one marketer who is acknowledged as a game changer in the industry. The shortlist will be announced after we unveil this year’s inductees into the Vision 100 on 28 April.

Meanwhile, you can take part in choosing the “Brand of the Year”, shortlist below, by voting for your favourite here.

All winners will be announced on 12 May at the Roundhouse in London in a ceremony presented by actor, comedian, campaigner and all round national treasure Sir Lenny Henry. I look forward to seeing you there. To book your table click here. I’ll see you there.
