Winners announced next month

The panel of esteemed Judges now have the difficult task of selecting the winners in each category and the prestigious ‘Best in Show’. The winners will be announced live at thenetworkone’s Indie Awards ceremony, kindly hosted by Four Communications in East London in the UK, on Wednesday 24 January 2024.

For Jason Foo, CEO of BBD Perfect Storm in the UK, and winner of the Public Good Award and overall Best in Show Award in 2022, the awards are recognition among a global network of creative innovators. He said: ‘Winning was a special moment for our agency. As a

proud independent agency, our Indie was recognition of the excellence we strive for in pushing boundaries and championing innovation for public good. This is the best opportunity to put your agency on the global stage, to compete with the very best independents in our industry and to showcase your creativity.’

Julian Boulding said: ‘Our awards are designed to honour and amplify the entrepreneurial spirit of the independent agencies. But it’s not just about creativity; independent agencies are competing on the international stage against the largest holding companies and

networks. Their agility, flexibility, and innovative approaches allow them to go head-to-head with industry giants, delivering exceptional results and earning client trust.’
