Shortlist 2015

*Table bookings are open for this year's DMA Awards night, to be held at Old Billingsgate on Tuesday 1 December. Get yours here.*

This year the DMA Awards were the most successful ever, with a record breaking number of entries. 

Traditional categories like Best Writing were judged over three days in central London alongside one new category in Best Use of Programmatic.

Check to see if you are on the list by clicking on the category names below. 

If you aren’t there, please don’t be discouraged. The standard was higher than ever this year - the DMA Awards are rewardingly hard to win after all.
