We’re so excited to announce that Raw London has been carefully chosen as one of nine agency finalists for The Creative Shootout, who will battle it out at the Live Final at BAFTA on Thursday 25th January 2018.
This is a different kind of creative award. Think Bake Off meets Dragon’s Den meets the creative industry. But done in a day, for charity.
Each finalist will have just four hours to crack their creative, before pitching their idea in ten minutes on stage at BAFTA for the chance to work with Charity of the Year, FareShare. The competition is open to agencies from any marketing discipline and is backed by all the major associations including The IPA, The CIPR, IAB UK and The CMA. Agencies had just 60 seconds to enter and finalists were selected by a very high profile Judging Panel from across the industry. You can see our entry here:

The winning agency will receive a £250,000 media prize fund from premium publisher cooperative 1XL, to help stage their campaign, as well as £30,000 in fees from FareShare, the national food re-distribution charity that is responsible for feeding half a million people a week in the UK.
