Find out which search agencies have made the shortlist for Agency of the Year

This week The Drum Awards for Search is set to highlight and celebrate the achievements of agencies working in the search sector.

Amid changing consumer habits and a shifting online landscape, a sharp approach to search marketing is more important than ever to advertisers. At this year’s awards, The Drum will be highlighting stories of search savvy – and crowning one Agency of the Year from a select pool of leading agency businesses.

This year, for the first time, the Agency of the Year gong will be decided by the efforts of our own team of expert researchers, rather than the opinions of judges. Using a new research-based process, they’ve identified the world’s best marketing agencies by drawing on data from The Drum Recommends (which recognizes client sentiment and rankings), industry-wide peer recommendations and other original research sources.

The winner of this prestigious award will therefore be recognized by both clients and peers. This year’s shortlist shows some of the excellent agencies currently in the digital advertising space.

Below, you’ll find the 12 agencies shortlisted for this year’s Agency of the Year category.
