There are SIX AURA Agency awards up for grabs this year and nominations are welcomed from AURA members. In addition to the five categories listed below, one agency will be chosen by the judges as AURA's Agency of the Year. This year AURA's Agency of the Year is sponsored by our friends at Mission Translate.
These awards mean an enormous amount to the agencies who win them because they are chosen by their clients, so please do consider nominating this year. This from Jeremy Rix, OKO:
"For OKO, winning the first ever Best Small Agency Award from AURA was a fantastic achievement. Our clients and prospective clients have a unique respect for AURA awards, given that agencies can’t apply for them. The fact that we were nominated by one of our clients (without them telling us!) and then voted winners by an amazing array of clientside specialists meant a huge amount, and has helped support our growth and success as an agency"
How does it work?
You are free to nominate any agency for one or more awards. To make life easier, if you want to nominate one agency in multiple categories, you can do so using just one form. Links to the form are alongside each category description.
Shortlisted agencies will be announced on 1st August, at which point the full AURA membership will be invited to vote for their favourite in each category. The winners will be announced on September 10th at AURA's online seminar and awards ceremony
