For over 40 years the British Arrows Awards have celebrated the very best film and talent that the British ad industry has to offer. Championing great film, in addition to the British Arrows, The British Arrows Craft awards is a night when the contribution of the oft-unsung heroes of production is celebrated.
In a constantly changing and innovative industry, the British Arrows have been a constant centre point that showcases great ideas and rewards the talent within UK advertising. Pioneering great works has been central to the British Arrows and each award show brings together the very best creative teams from across the country.
The British Arrow Awards continued the esteemed tradition of its predecessors and saw the top agencies in the country descend upon Battersea for the event. The stand out winner of this year’s awards was the Nothing Beats a Londoner campaign created by Wieden+Kennedy London which won 14 prizes – six gold Arrows, six gold Crafts and two silver Crafts. Along with Commercial of the Year, it received the honour of Best Crafted Commercial. Nike was also named Advertiser of Excellence for its continued delivery of inspiring advertising worldwide.
