Award Nominations

We need your nominations for the following award categories:

(Entry form:

  1. Commercial Acumen (Agency)
    Delivering insightful and cutting edge research is one half of the equation, this award recognises an agency who has stepped up and proactively helped our members drive commercial returns from their insights.
  2. Communication (Agency)
    Putting the output of any research project in front of an internal audience can be a make or break moment for any of our members. This award seeks agencies whose communications are capable of creating ‘wow’ moments and our members are proud to put in front any internal audience.
  3. Trusted Partner (Agency)
    AURA members form relationships with many of the agencies they work with, but what’s even better is when they find a trusted partner. A partner who understands the business’ agenda and goes beyond the call of duty to help you deliver it.
  4. Best small agency of the year award (Agency, Less than 25 employees or <£1million turnover)
    It is important to highlight the great work that is happening across the industry by all agencies. Alongside the recognition established agencies receive this award is intended to highlight the best small agencies our members have been working with.
  5. Best new agency award (Agency – all nominated must be <6 years old)
    We know the work the established agencies are delivering is excellent but this award is designed for you to show how the expertise of new agencies in the industry is delivering for your organisation.
  6. Best Client-side team (team of 1 or more)

We know its not all about the agencies, this award is an opportunity to demonstrate how and why your team has delivered first class insight to your organisation .
