The Dadi Awards: pictures from the night

DADI Awards

The Dadi Awards made a spectacular return this Wednesday. To celebrate excellence and give great companies the recognition they deserve, the awards came with a side of champagne, dancing and a comedy act to boot.

Held in association with UKFast, a grand total of 37 awards were handed out on the night, with Rothco | Accenture Interactive for JFK Unsilenced taking home the top accolade; the Grand Prix.
