RAR Awards finalists announced

The Recommended Agency Register has announced the finalists for its inaugural RAR Awards, which take place in London on 21 April.

RAR Awards finalists announced

The awards aim to highlight service excellence from marketing companies, with accolades going to agencies with the highest client ratings.

Winners have been identified by their average rating in each of the categories, with scores weighted to prevent a small number of high votes skewing the field. The top scoring companies are identified here as finalists and the winners will be announced at the awards ceremony.

Awards categories include marketing discipline fields such as Advertising, Brand Strategy, Design, Digital, Direct Marketing, Events, Integrated, Media Buying, Print Production, Public Relations and Sales Promotions, and service level awards have also been recognised, with Client Service, Creativity, Effectiveness, Professionalism, Strategic Thinking and Value for Money all acknowledged. Each category will also have further sub categories of ‘up to 30 employees’ and ‘over 30 employees’ with a winner identified from each of these groups.

Results of the 2010 RAR awards will be announced at the awards ceremony at the Russell Hotel, Russell Square, London on Wednesday 21 April.
