The Creative Circle announce the shortlist for the 2019 awards. Every company on this Shortlist is a winner and will receive an award at the Creative Circle Ball, taking place at the Troxy on Thursday 9th May.

Work submitted to this year’s award underwent extreme scrutiny by this year’s Gold Judges. With the industry producing ever-more content, Judges were determined only to award the best creative work that would stand the test of time. As a result, only 70 prestigious Gold awards will be presented this year. During their careful debate, Gold Judges also submitted 26 entries into unentered categories where they felt work deserved to be recognised as outstanding in its field.

In its ongoing effort to support the next generation of young creatives, the 2019 new talent categories were free to enter. ‘Best Up and Coming Commercial Film Director’ (both Male & Female) and ‘Most Promising Creative Newcomer’ (both Male & Female) will be announced on the awards night alongside, Most Creative Agency, Most Creative Production Company and Most Creative Post Production Company.

Jeremy Green, CEO at Creative Circle, says: “It has been an interesting and potentially historic year for the UK. Celebrating our strengths as one of the best creative industries in the world has become more important than ever. With the huge amount of commercial content being produced year-on-year, truly assessing whether work is worthy of metal is the only way to recognise creative excellence. This year’s judges were passionate about ensuring awards in this industry hold a real value. As a result, the debate over this year’s work may be the toughest we’ve seen yet. We have always sought for the Creative Circle to be hard to win and they definitely put entries through their paces. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm and drive that went into their decision-making process.

Tickets for the Creative Circle Ball sell-out in advance every year. To secure tickets to the awards night, head to the Creative Circle bookings website.
