The Clear Channel Outdoor Planning Awards, which are held in association with Haymarket Brand Media, aim to reward outdoor planning that demonstrates clear objectives and strategy, and strong results, showing a return on investment.
WPP media agency Mindshare won nominations for its work with its out-of-home sister agency Kinetic for the sports brand Nike, including Write the Future, Nike Grid and Nike World Cup.
Interpublic media agency UM won nominations for its work for retailer H&M, including H&M Home A City Centre Makeover with Kinetic, and the H&M Continuity campaign with Kinetic and Interpublic sister agency IPM.
UM was also nominated for its work with IPM for Burton’s Foods Cadbury's biscuits.
Each of the six category winners will receive a prize of £1,000, while an overall Grand Prix winner will receive £30,000 of advertising space on Clear Channel's premium Pinnacle formats and a luxury European short break for two.
A spokesman for Clear Channel Outdoor said the most successful entries were "beautifully written" and told an inspiring story, and demonstrated an impressive and comprehensive approach to the planning challenge.
The winners in each category and the Grand Prix will be announced at the awards ceremony on Tuesday 19 April.
