AWARD has today announced the shortlist for the 44th AWARD Awards’ Special Award categories, which will be judged as part of This Way Up: Australia’s Advertising Festival of Creativity in Sydney from August 15-17.
The winners will be announced at the Gold Pencil Award Party – the festival’s wrap celebration taking place at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art on the evening of Thursday 17 August.
The entry-based Special Awards are not calculated through a points-based system but instead are judged by specialist juries who give scores for each of the entered pieces of work.
The aim is to spotlight individuals, companies and networks who have consistently delivered high-quality work across the year, spreading the recognition and sharing the reward.
The Special Awards include Individual Agency of the Year, Individual Creative or Team of the Year, Individual Director of the Year, Emerging Creative or Team of the Year, Emerging Director of the Year, Marketing Team of the Year, Account Team of the Year, Chief Marketing Officer of the Year, Emerging Indigenous Creative Talent, Agency Network of the Year, and Production Company of the Year.
The Grand Award (AWARD’s best in show) will also be announced on the night.
