Newsworks Planning Awards 2019

 

On behalf of the leading national newspapers in the UK, the Newsworks Planning Awards were created in 2013 to celebrate the UK's outstanding planning talent in media agencies and beyond.

The 2019 awards will be judged by a panel comprised of leading marketers and agency experts, chaired by Olivia Hendrick, marketing director at Hiscox.

The awards will be presented at a party at the Century Club on Wednesday 27 November 2019.

Who should enter and why

If you have delivered a great campaign - something innovative, clever or that you are particularly proud of - these awards are for you. The Newsworks Planning Awards are the UK’s only awards dedicated to defining the standards of excellence in media planning in national newspapers.

The awards will provide a platform for your work to receive recognition and praise from top industry judges, who will be focused on rewarding innovative work and talented people. The winning papers will be a source of knowledge, inspiration and ideas, helping drive standards even higher.
