Brand You Awards 2014 deadline 4th July

Published on Friday, 18th July 2014
Although the deadline has now passed, we're putting the final touches to your entries for 2014 so let us know if you need a couple more days to send your entry in!

We're delighted with the entries for this year's Brand You Awards but we know that there are more of you out there who deserve to be recoginsed for your work.  So we have extended the deadline until Friday 4th July. 

There are plenty of opportunities to win awards in our industry, and to be recognised for campaigns and projects across a variety of genres, but Brand You is different.  We focus on the individual, the freelancer or member of staff, the actual people who make a real difference and whose contribution is sometimes overlooked as part of the bigger picture.

"It was an honour to be recognised as one of Bristol's leading games designers. Especially so in light of the city's enormous talent pool and growing international recognition. I wear the badge of Bristol with pride, and my Brand You award is something nice to show for it!" Ben Templeton, ThoughtDen

Brand You, is produced by Bristol Media and Social Heads and supported by Cloud 9, and this year we'd like to hear from individuals working right across the creative sectors in the South West. It doesn’t matter whether you are just beginning your career or you have already established yourself in your field.  It’s time to make a stand and shout about your success – or indeed the success of someone you know.

"Brand You is a great way of recognising the work of individuals as well as teams for sheer hard work, creativity and results.  Celebrating excellence and sharing ideas between our peers is what underpins Bristol Media and makes it a great organisation to be part of"  Joanna Randall, PurpleFish PR

"I was delighted to have been a winner at last year's Brand You Awards, firstly because being recognised for your achievements in such a creative city like Bristol is a very proud moment but made it even more special was that it signified to me that events and experiential are becoming a stronger contender in the creative media mix." Alex Pearn, ClinkClink

The Awards are celebrating the outstanding contribution that in house, agency staff and freelancers make to campaigns, projects and productions.

Judging Panel

The credibility of any awards programme is measured by the calibre of the judges and we have secured an excellent Judging Panel for each of the categories from the length and breadth of the country. With a leading professional from the South West plus three or four additional judges from outside the region to add balance, you can be assured that the results will be completely fair and unbiased.

"Brand You's first year produced an outstanding and very deserving winner. It clearly demonstrated the world leading wealth of creative talent in the region". Roger Proctor MBE, Proctor & Stevenson
