shortlist

Computer Arts' Brand Impact Awards reward the very best branding from around the world. Now in its fifth year, the scheme's rich heritage of past winners represent the cream of the global branding industry.

2018's shortlist is no different. For the third consecutive year, the Brand Impact Awards has received a record number of entries – 194 projects, from 79 different agencies. After many impassioned debates between the world-class judging panel, just over a quarter of the projects submitted made the shortlist. We can now reveal those 48 projects, from 30 different agencies – scroll down for the full list.

The winning and highly commended projects will be revealed at the fourth-annual Brand Impact Awards ceremony at the Ham Yard Hotel, London, on Thursday 6 September.
For more information on tickets and the evening itself please visit the Event page. 

Being shortlisted for the Brand Impact Awards is an accolade in itself. Standards are unfalteringly high, and if judges felt that none of the projects submitted in a category met the criteria, that category was cut altogether. 
Also, being the only agency shortlisted in a category does not necessarily mean taking home a coveted BIA trophy on the night. So it's all to play for.
