Shortlist announced for the Brand Impact Awards

We announce the agencies in contention for the branding industry event of the year. Read on to discover who made the grade...

Brought to you by Computer Arts, the Brand Impact Awards is a new international prize scheme that celebrates creative excellence and consistency across branding design.

As well as branding experts from world-class agencies such as Wolff Olins and Dare, the judging panel uniquely includes a raft of creative people on the client side, responsible for commissioning branding programmes and campaigns for top brands including Coca-Cola, Tesco, Crabtree & Evelyn and more. We've had more than 150 entries and the standard has been exceptional, as the judges make clear in the video above.

The winners will be annnounced at a special ceremony on 6 March, following the Impact branding conference. Tables for the awards ceremony are now live, with early bird pricing until the 7th February: you can find full details here.

If you didn't manage to get your entries in this year, then make sure it doesn't happen again - sign up for updates using this form and we'll let you know the minute 2015 awards entries go live.
