The Brave Awards 2019

A brave new awards scheme for a brave marketing world

Pavillion at Tower of London Moat, 12 June, 6:30pm

Established in 1985 as the Awards for Excellence and then becoming the Excellence Awards in 2016, we relaunched our awards at the end of 2018 as the Brave Awards. We're delighted to announce this year's host will be Zoe Lyons.

They continue to set the standard of marketing excellence in the UK and have been an institution since 1985 – establishing their reputation as the country’s leading marketing awards.

Each year they are judged by an elite panel of senior marketer and are a chance to honour and highlight the great work of agencies and brands and to take stock of what is happening in marketing in the UK and around the world.


To see the 2019 shortlist and to book your tables head to our Brave Awards site here.
