And finally... 6. Agency of the year

The award submissions were judged by a variety of agency and brand leaders, including: Carolyn McKeeve, global head of loyalty at Shell; Universal Music UK’s director of digital Paul Smernicki; Leigh Thomas, chief executive officer at Dare and DigitasLBI’s chief technology officer, Ross.
