The NatMag 100 Award, which forms part of the publisher's 100th birthday celebrations, invited agencies to devise the most innovative and creative ad campaign for an individual brand. The agencies had to utilise a combination of the publisher's brand portfolio and platforms to target women or men in the UK.
Launched in June, in association with Campaign and Media Week, it offers advertisers and agencies the opportunity to win a £250,000 multimedia ad campaign across the entire NatMag portfolio.
The shortlist includes: MediaVest for P&G, Clear Blue; Mindshare for Ford Fiesta; Carat for Nivea; Carat for Debenhams; M2M for Estee Lauder; MEC for Next, and Red C/MediaVest for Marisota.
ZenithOptimedia has been shortlisted for L'Oreal, V&R Flowerbomb; Vizeum for Pure; Manning Gottlieb OMD for John Lewis; and Walker Media for M&S Beauty.
The winner will be announced as part of the NatMag 100 Year Conference to be held at The Saatchi Gallery on 11 October.
