Nicky Bullard, Chair of the DMA Awards committee, commented: “It’s been a funny old year. The agency landscape has changed. People have moved and the work felt just as unsettled. However, the results we’ve seen this year show real strength in this industry. Multiple successes across different clients show that whatever the market conditions, strategic talent, strong client leadership and creative consistency will always win out.”
Rachel Aldighieri, MD at the DMA, added: “The DMA Awards offer a shop window for our industry, showcasing this year’s best campaigns. The entries have been filled with strategic thinking and creative panache in order to deliver fantastic results for clients. Making even getting to a shortlist more than a little challenging in some categories. It’s also been fantastic to see the number of agencies on this year’s shortlist and the wide array of talent and skills we have in our industry.”
