The best campaigns, companies and people from around the world

The Drum Awards for Online Media 2022
In partnership with GumGum

This year, we saw entries from global editorial teams and media owners of all sizes with the skill and commitment to keep the public informed.

The Grand Prix was secured by Al Jazeera for a clever experience it created to show how inaccessible some of the world’s biggest cities are. Meanwhile, the Chairs Award went to Sky News’s admirable coverage of Cop26 and the climate crisis.

The competition was judged by a powerhouse panel of digital advertising leaders from the likes of CNN, NBCU, Bloomberg, Elle, LinkedIn, Wired UK, The Athletic and Insider.
