The Drum Recommends Awards for Digital: finalists announced

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday October 14

The Drum Recommends is a platform designed to help brands find their next agency partner, as well as support agencies by closing the feedback loop with clients. Brands rate the services they receive, and agencies with enough good ratings achieve recommended status.

Each year, The Drum collates these ratings to identify the teams that consistently go the extra mile for their clients. These agencies are recognized at The Drum Recommends Marketing and Advertising Awards, which this year took place in May.

The Drum Recommends Awards for Digital is instead devoted to digital agencies, celebrating the teams that specialize in digital services and campaigns.

Thanks to the rating process, these awards are unique in the industry: there are no reports to compose or forms to fill out. Winners are determined only by the high scores given by their clients.

This year’s winners will be revealed at a virtual ceremony on Thursday October 14 at 4pm BST. You can register here to attend and join us in celebrating the best of 2021’s recommended digital agencies.

If your agency is not yet a member of The Drum Recommends, but deserves to become officially recommended by The Drum, you can sign up here.
