Jury chair Jerry Daykin comments: "We see partnerships as core to driving immediate results as well as wider transformation across our business as the world around us becomes faster moving and more digital. We don't use the word partnership lightly though, and really believe you only see the best results when all involved parties are benefiting from having a closer relationship."

The winners of the Grands Prix and Special Awards across all four categories - Effective Use of Partnerships and Sponsorships, Effective Channel Integration, Effective Use of Tech and Best Use of Data - will share a prize fund of $40,000.
