Chris Pelekanou, the commercial director at Clear Channel UK and a judge, said: "It’s been a brilliant twelve months for Clear Channel and the out-of-home sector. We’ve celebrated 25 years of Adshel, shook up premium digital with the launch of Storm and helped flood the streets of the UK with art.

"We’ve seen wonderful campaigns across all formats - blending great creative, fantastic use of technology and, of course, wonderful planning. We are very proud that it’s our eighth year being involved in the planning awards and every year the bar is most definitely raised – I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s submissions."
