"The Drum is at the forefront of reflecting the latest trends in public relations and in the marketing services industry generally. I am pleased that agencies and in-house teams will have an opportunity to showcase their achievements to the wider marketing community which The Drum serves and not just to their own peers. I will be looking for entries which show demonstrable evidence of return on investment and a clear contribution to an organisation’s business objectives. I won’t be interested in stunts or coverage for coverage’s sake."
