Judges from a number of notable partner organisations including Investors in People, the Creative Industries Federation and the British Film Institute joined over 30 clients and commissioners to rank over 80 winning projects presented by agencies and individuals who qualified through shortlisting rounds in the Summer.
EVCOM CEO, Jennifer Jenkins said “The EVCOM Industry Awards 18 attracted the highest number of entrants into the agency of the year categories. We will continue to improve the scheme and find innovative ways to showcase the winning projects. The quality of the work needs to be seen and shared. It is testament to the vibrancy and creative talent of the live and visual communications communities that make up the EVCOM membership. There has never been a more important time to showcase this work internationally.”
