Celebrating the people behind the industry's creative output with Annual 2018

Published by

The Annual is a spectacular celebration of creativity and diversity. With 27 categories shining a light onto the best creative work, a further 10 categories celebrate the people, teams and companies that breathe life into the projects.

As the only industry award that distinguishes an Influencer of the Year, we are proud to crown our community with much anticipated and prestigious titles.

Each year we recognise and honour the emerging talent that blazes trails, the influencers that drive change, the agencies that break ground, the brands that innovate and the recruitment companies that connect talent in the industry.

“Creativepool is built from the ground up to represent the creative industry on a global scale, and to really elevate the best work and people from leading studios and brands behind that work. I like the way this network deals with creativity above the noise, and is establishing itself as a true source of information and inspiration to help creative people get better at what they do. Therefore, it’s an honour to be recognised by the community as Agency of the Year.” - Duan Evans, International Executive Creative Director, AKQA
