The face of the industry is changing but The Drum still firmly believes the core disciplines that have made the profession what it is today are more relevant now than ever before. As the market changes, new challenges may have emerged but the creative skills such as problem solving, art direction, strategic thinking and great execution are just as important in this new economy.

The awards are open to all design consultancies, advertising agencies, digital agencies, creative agencies, media owners, in house teams, freelancers or clients who work within the design discipline.

Agencies or client head offices must be based in the UK for eligibility.

The winners will be announced on 28 April 2016 at a black tie ceremony at London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square.
