About the Brave Awards

Previously the Awards for Excellence and Excellence Awards, we relaunched The Marketing Society awards at the end of 2018, renamed our Brave Awards.

They set the standard of marketing excellence and have been an institution since 1985 – establishing their reputation as the UK’s leading marketing awards.

Each year they are judged by an elite panel of senior marketers, drawn from blue-chip organisations.

The awards are a chance to honour and highlight the great work of agencies and brands and to take stock of what is happening in marketing in the UK and around the world.

Submissions are open to all organisations, brands and agencies worldwide.

Entries are submitted and paid for online and may be done so by the owner of the brand or company (or their marketing/ad agency) and you don’t have to be a Society member to enter, or reside in the UK.
