ABOUT THE AWARDS


The Campaign Brand Leadership & Partnership Awards are here to celebrate and reward the visionary minds and organisations that have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in the fields of marketing, branding, and strategic alliances.

A note from the Editor


"Now, more than ever, definitions and expectations surrounding leadership are changing. That sense of transformation and collaboration was reflected last year in the inaugural Campaign Brand Leadership and Partnership Awards, when a varied, diverse range of winners across the advertising industry and in other media and business sectors were celebrated for their inspiration, motivation and energy. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the 2023 awards bring."
