The Drum Awards for Design celebrate truly great, problem-solving design: design that balances aesthetics and effectiveness, art and commerce, and provides users with a better experience of their world

The global awards highlight the best art direction, strategic thinking and execution

These global awards highlight the best art direction, strategic thinking and execution, and are open to anyone using design thinking to make a difference.

The awards will take place on May 26 and, after a great deal of deliberation by an amazing panel of judges headed by Bow & Arrow co-founder Natasha Chetiyawardana and featuring the likes of Spotify’s Heiko Winter, Wolff Ollins’s Emma Barratt and Rapp’s Hiten Bhatt (who joined the most recent episode of The Drum Show to talk about the awards), the nominations have now been announced.

One category the judges don’t get a say in, however, is Agency of the Year. This category is exclusive and free-of-charge to agencies held in the highest esteem by their clients, as polled by The Drum Recommends.

The winner will be decided by the efforts of our own team of expert researchers drawing on data from The Drum Recommends (which recognizes client sentiment and rankings), industry-wide peer recommendations and other original research sources.

This year, there are 10 agencies in the running. They are:

  • Pearlfisher

  • The Big Group

  • 1HQ

  • Bulletproof

  • Bold

  • Storm Creative

  • Think Design

  • Cygnus

  • Threerooms

  • SO Marketing

The awards show, which will take place in The Drum Labs in London on May 26, will be streamed live on, where we’ll hear from judges, interview winners, show winning work and much more. Register now and save the date in your diary.
