Newsworks Planning Awards 2017

 

Celebrating the stand-out campaigns that have run in newsbrands over the past year, the Newsworks Planning Awards recognise (and raise a glass to) media agencies’ innovative and creative planning teams.

Entries are across seven categories and take full account of today's multi-platform and multimedia environment. The 2017 awards will be judged by a panel comprised of leading marketers and agency experts, chaired by Zaid Al-Qassab, chief brand and marketing officer at BT.

The awards are now closed for entries. The shortlist will be announced on 1 November and the winners will be announced at a party at the Century Club on Thursday 23 November 2017.
