JUDGES

 

The Brand Impact Awards are judged by an expert panel from world-class agencies including Superunion, Taxi Studio and The Clearing, as well as branding experts who've worked client-side for top brands such as the BBC, Virgin, Barclays and British Heart Foundation. Judges are given three key criteria: firstly, a strong concept that’s appropriate for the client; secondly, beautiful and consistent execution across two or more touchpoints; and finally, branding that stands head and shoulders above the rest of its market sector.

Thank you to all the judges taking part in the Brand Impact Awards 2019. We will be announcing more judges soon.
