Make no mistake, the Immortal Awards jury were tough. Motivated by a welcome message from none other than Sir John Hegarty at the beginning of the day, they took the idea of anointing Immortal work incredibly seriously.
While just four pieces were deemed to be ‘Immortal Creativity’ – that is, projects that will have a lasting impact on the brand or the industry and which raise the bar - the judges were impressed by the high quality and diversity of work shortlisted. This year the jury commended 12 pieces as being exceptional campaigns and stand-outs for 2018. Check out the commended work below – and for the Immortal winners head here.
