G19 gears up for an all-time record year
G-Awards organisers have seen a massive upturn in entries – up 80% on last year, making 2019 an all-time record year with numbers up in all of the event’s categories.
The final deadline for entries closed last week and the panel of independent judges will now start scrutinising submissions to find just 12 trophy winners, and early reports suggest it will be a vintage year for quality of entries as well as sheer numbers.
“There’s been a massive boost in the Unsung Hero nominations – one of the newest categories in the Awards,” said organiser Tony Higgin, “But we’ve also seen big increases in Products, Customer Care and Promotional Campaigns, and every category has see increases on last year. It all goes to show the prestige that the industry’s biggest and best awards event still carries.”
The first stage of the judging will be completed next month when each of the category finalists are announced. Then the wait begins until Friday November 29 when the overall winners will take the spotlight at the G19 Awards Gala Dinner and Presentations.
