There’s a mix of categories this year including agency, team and specific campaign categories.

Whether you’re an emerging small agency making an impact, a midsize agency with a real focus on growth for staff and clients or a large established agency working on campaigns with a global reach – there’s plenty of categories to pick from to celebrate your agency’s wins.

Are you particularly proud of a PR, social media or search marketing campaign your team has worked on? Perhaps it’s a sector specific campaign in education, health or in tourism and leisure? Our campaign categories might be for you.

There are also three free categories to enter including Best In-House Marketing Team, Best Not-For-Profit Campaign and Prolific North Marketer of the Year, which will be decided by a combination of judges’ and public votes.
