The awards, which are sponsored by Vodafone, will cover 11 categories, including Advertising Agency of the Year, Media Agency of the Year, Direct Agency of the Year and Campaign of the Year.

Other categories will be Best Advertiser, Best Production Company, Medium of the Year and Digital Agency of the Year. Campaign will also name International Media and Creative Networks and an International Campaign of the Year.
