The announcement of this year’s 44th AWARD Awards winners will be held virtually and in-person as part of This Way Up: Australia’s Advertising Festival of Creativity, taking place at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art in August.

On Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 August, AWARD will host two virtual events to announce this year’s Bronze winners while also showcasing the campaigns that have been awarded at least a silver with the potential to win gold.

The prized Gold and Special Award winners will then be announced at The Gold Pencil Award Party, the premier event on This Way Up’s festival schedule, to be held at the MCA on the evening of Thursday 17 August.

AWARD Chair Cam Blackley said: “Tuning into our two live-streamed announcements on August 15 and 16 will be the only way to find out if you’re in the running to win gold this year, so make sure you grab your team and are part of the online festivities.

“It’ll be a great opportunity to view all the work awarded at the 44th AWARD Awards before the industry comes together to celebrate this year’s Gold and Special winners at This Way Up.”

At the Gold Pencil Award Party – amid live entertainment, food, drinks and views of Sydney Harbour – the creative community will get to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in creativity and celebrate the wrap of this year’s festival, while AWARD announces the most prestigious accolades of the year.

Gold and Special Awards presented on the night include The Grand Award, The Grand Strategy Award, Individual Agency of the Year, Agency Network of the Year, Rising Star Award/Breakthrough Agency, Production Company of the Year, Individual Creative or Team of the Year, Emerging Creative or Team of the Year, and more (full list of awards here).
