The wait is over – the UnAwards18 shortlist has been published
by Darren Caveney
It’s not an exaggeration to say that it’s been a massive task for the UnAwards judges this year.
420 entries is a pretty astonishing return.
Huge thanks for the time and effort which all entrants took this year.
If you have made it onto the shortlist you should be really proud, it’s a major achievement.
And if you didn’t make it onto the shortlist you’ll of course be sad. We’ve all been there. But that should not detract from you being proud of your work.
Many on the shortlist this year didn’t make it in 2017. So please don’t give up – try again next year.

BEING AT THE BIG DAY…
Each year the publication of the shortlist sparks a run on the remaining tickets.
I am going to limit ticket sales to two per organisation so that I can get as many shortlisted people to the big day as possible.
Ticket availability is limited and is first come, first served.
You can buy up to two tickets HERE.
Finally a big, big thank you to the team of external judges - all 20 of them:
Dave Worsell, Matt Johnson, Emma Rodgers, Ross Wigham, Phil Morcom, Bridget Aherne, Carolyne Mitchell, David Grindley, Caroline Roodhouse, Alan Oram, Ian Curwen, Fran Collingham, Stuart Banbery, Rachael Richardson-Bullock, Matt Nicholls, Victoria Ford, John-Paul Danon, Phil Jewitt, Holly Bremner and Ben Capper.
It’s been a huge amount of work for you all and I thank you so much for your time and efforts. I owe you all a beer.
I look forward to seeing many of you on 7 December.
