The category of Commercial Creatives includes people with careers across the sectors of advertising, marketing and branding, film, video, publishing, media and entertainment, TV and other broadcast mediums.

We’re looking to recognise people who have excelled in using their exceptional creative skills, within this Commercial Sector, in inspiring and exciting ways. But perhaps most importantly, in innovative ways that are a new break through or a first in the sector.  For example, combining or introducing new concepts into the field, or introducing creative concepts that are new or unique to the market.

Please note, in 2015 we split out the Creative Industries category into two distinct Awards: Commercial Creatives and The Arts. Previous Commercial Creatives Award winners include Justin O’Shea, Former Creative Director, Brioni and Siobhan Reddy, Studio Director, Media Molecule. Previous winners in the Creative Industries category include Sir Jonathan Mills, Director & Chief Executive of the Edinburgh International Festival and The Hub, David Droga, Creative Chairman of Droga5, and John Polson, Director of Tropfest.
