We are delighted to announce our 2018 Oystercatchers Awards shortlist.

For over five years, our awards have celebrated the blood, sweat and tears poured into building a successful, dynamic business.  This year, we have introduced ten new categories to celebrate excellence more broadly across the industry.

Our CEO, Suki Thompson commented: “As a company, we’re uniquely positioned at the intersection between clients, agencies and innovation – the upshot is that we have a truly exceptional view of excellence everywhere in our industry.”  Our new style of awards evening will be a fun filled, inspiring evening to celebrate the shortlist and the worthy winners that our 20 senior client judges debated long and hard to appoint.”

She continued: “The awards celebrate the very best of industry excellence: the power when agencies and clients combine to drive commercial growth with magical creativity and innovation.”

Final results will be revealed at The Oystercatchers Awards Evening on Wednesday 21 November, 6.30pm at the Renaissance St Pancreas Hotel, London.  To join us please click here https://awards.theoystercatchers.com/register
