Our judging panel convened yesterday at Twitter to debate the shortlist for these brand new APG awards. A tough task: the authors did much to confirm our hopes that we are continuing to draw great strategic talent towards the industry. We saw a wide variety of intelligent strategic responses from around the world: Singapore, Tehran, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Canada.
It was a tough choice - all of the entries had strengths, but we have arrived at our final choices for Golds, Silvers, Bronzes and of course our outright winner of the two categories.
As there has been huge interest in seeing the winning papers from the Planning Community, we will be asking each winner to come to Future Rising to be filmed talking through the ideas in their papers as they receive their awards.
The winning papers will be published on the APG site, and the outright winners in the APG Creative Strategy Awards book for 2015.
The shortlist will be announced at the beginning of next week.
