It has also been fantastic to see such strong submissions in the new categories introduced for 2015 covering financial services, design, b2b and agency talent. All of the finalists should be incredibly proud, the field is stronger than I’ve seen in years and I very
much look forward to seeing the winners announced at the end of September.”
