Following an exhaustive, five week judging process – which included detailed online scoring of every submitted campaign and three lively, face-to-face judges panel sessions in Manchester and London – the IPM has today announced its much-anticipated Awards 2019 shortlist.
Featuring 77 campaigns from 65 brands across 30 categories (plus ‘Team of the Year’, new for 2019), the trophies will be announced and awarded at the gala presentation event on Thursday 4th July at the Hilton Park Lane (you can buy tickets and tables to this event here).
Paul Cope, Managing Director at the IPM, said: “This shortlist is the culmination of over four months’ hard work by the IPM, our judges and entrants, and, of course, countless more months of blood, sweat and tears by the agencies and brands who created these campaigns in the first place. We’d sincerely like to thank everyone who’s been involved up to this point. As ever, we’re inspired and humbled by just how many brilliant campaigns were submitted and we can’t wait to hand out some well-deserved trophies on 4th July!”
Richard Pink, Head of Awards at the IPM, said: “Our superb judges left no stone unturned in the scoring and trophy selection process and I’d like to thank each of them for their effort and expertise. It’s important to us that only the best work wins and that is certainly the case this year – the overall standard is remarkable.”
The IPM Awards exists to recognise and reward brilliantly effective, insightful and creative campaigns in the promotional marketing and brand activation space. Work that really worked. Ideas to be properly proud of. Campaigns that deserve to be celebrated.
The very best the industry has to offer, in fact.
