Here we go: Shortlist revealed for B&T's inaugural Best of the Best Awards.

With lockdowns happening left, right and centre, and a vaccine rollout that’s slower than a wet week, it’s fair to say a lot of us are feeling a little deflated right now.

However, one thing that’s certainly lifted our spirits here at B&T is recognising the incredible amount of talent in the pool of advertising, marketing, media and technology.

Our newest awards program, Best of the Best, has turned out to be a raging success, with people from all corners of the industry throwing their hats in the ring and showcasing their individual prowess.

The judges have had the difficult task of going through all the ridiculously good entries for Best of the Best with a fine-tooth comb to uncover those with just that extra bit of sparkle, and we’re happy to report that they are finally finished!

That’s right, we are ready and raring to pull back the curtain and reveal the shortlist for the inaugural Best of the Best awards, presented by Finecast.

If you’re on the list (HUGE congrats), please make sure your name and company are spelled correctly.

If you win, a trophy really won’t look as good if it doesn’t have the correct name on it. Please email with any changes.

Now, before we do the all-important reveal, it’s important to flag a change to the official proceedings.

In light of the current COVID situation, we’ve decided to play it safe and take the awards into a virtual arena. The Best of the Best ceremony will kick off on Friday 10 September at 4pm (AEST). Register HERE now to secure your free spot!

Once again, a big thanks to our wonderful judges, along with presenting partner Finecast and sponsors HubSpot and Shopper Media for all your support. We simply couldn’t be putting on such a grand event without each and every one of you!

Now, without further ado, here’s the shortlist for the first-ever Best of the Best awards…
