AURA members can nominate agencies in four categories and the awards mean an enormous amount to the agencies who win them because they are chosen by you - their clients.
In June the full AURA membership will be invited to vote for their favourite in each category. The winners will be announced on July 19th at AURA Awards dinner in London.
What are the categories?
