← back to all news A celebration of stand-out media planning
Celebrating the stand-out campaigns that have run in newsbrands over the past year, the Newsworks Planning Awards recognise (and raise a glass to) media agencies’ innovative and creative planning teams.
Entries are across eight categories and take full account of today’s multi-platform and multimedia environment.
The 2018 awards will be judged by a panel comprised of leading marketers and agency experts, chaired by Alessandra Bellini, chief customer officer at Tesco.
The awards will be presented at a party at the Century Club on Thursday 29 November 2018.
Who should enter and why
If you are an agency planner and you have delivered a great campaign - something innovative, clever or that you are particularly proud of - these awards are for you.
The Newsworks Planning Awards are the UK’s only awards dedicated to defining the standards of excellence in media planning in national newspapers. The awards will provide a platform for your work to receive recognition and praise from top industry judges, who will be focused on rewarding innovative work and talented people.
The winning papers will be a source of knowledge, inspiration and ideas, helping drive standards even higher.
