The AdNews Agency of the Year Awards are Australia's leading agency awards.

It's that time of year again. The AdNews Agency of the Year awards are just a month away, and after many long hours of deliberation, the judges have spoken and whittled the entrants down to a list of finalists.

Clemenger, Saatchi & Saatchi and Leo Burnett are each up for six awards overall, with Cummins&Partners and M&C Saatchi named as finalists in four categories each.

We had more entries than ever before and the two new categories; Best use of Data and The Branded Content Award gave the judges something new to chew over.

All will be revealed at the awards ceremony on 5 March. You can buy tickets for the black tie soiree here: Book a place! 

The overall AdNews Agency of the Year winner will be announced at the event, alongside the winners in each category, and the inductee into the Advertising Hall of Fame. Last year, Cummins&Partners was named the AdNews Agency of the Year.

And don't forget there are $500 prizes for the Bauer Media Best-Dressed Awards - male and female.
