What's this?

After two days holed up in a room, our esteemed judging panel for this year’s Roses Creative Awards have revealed who’s made the cut and could be taking home a trophy this May.

Leith, Havas Lynx, RBH, bigdog and McCann Manchester lead the charge this year with a healthy number of nominations between them. And Taxi Studio, BJL, Specsavers and TBWA Manchester also boast a handful of nominations.

You can check out the full list here along with a small gallery of this year’s nominated work below.

This year’s finalists were chosen by an elite panel of judges which included AKQA’s Wayne Deakin; Helen Fuchs of Us Two; Turner Duckworth’s Clem Halpin and Dayoung Yun of Mother among others. BMB's Trevor Beattie led this year's panel as chairman.

Of the entries, Fuchs commented: “We witnessed great craft and strong ideas and best of all were the unexpected gems that simply moved you. From judging well-loved brands to independent thinkers, the Roses give a much-needed fresh perspective on our industry.”

Cheil’s Georgia Barretta added that this year’s finalists represented, more than ever, the “regional strive for strong, loud, confident creative”.
