The changes will make the awards more relevant and give the event a new creative and contemporary twist.
The 2005 Press Awards will be held at the Old Truman Brewery on London's Brick Lane and the evening will have a fresh, modern format rather than the traditional black-tie dinner approach.
The awards categories have been updated to better reflect the marketing sectors in which campaigns have to work, and the rules for entry have been simplified.
Details of the new categories and how to enter the awards are inserted in this week's issue.

The latest crop of UK and international press ads are reviewed in two special Private Views (pp34-7) to mark the launch of the Campaign Press Advertising Awards 2005.
