The 'early bird' discounted entry deadline passed at midnight on Thursday (25 May). Entrants still have until 8 June to make submissions, subject to a late fee of £85 plus VAT.

The winners will be announced at a gala Awards evening taking place in London on 18 October, where the best agencies, in-house teams and individuals will be crowned.

Big winners at last year's awards were the agencies Unity and The Romans, as well as MHP/Engine's Missing Type type campaign.

This year, which will be the 30th anniversary of the Awards ceremony, five new gongs are also up for grabs.

In the People and Agencies section, the Game Changer/Big Thinker Award has been added, rewarding an individual or organisation that has devised and developed an idea that has changed the industry for the better. The new Force for Good Award recognises the individual or organisation whose selfless actions related to the PR industry have benefited society or specific communities.

There is also a Best Agency Outside of London award to recognise the most accomplished agency whose HQ is outside the M25, while in the campaigns section there is the new Best Influencer Marketing Campaign Award and a Best Use of New Technology Award.
