The Indie Awards are the only large scale international awards designed exclusively for independent agencies of all communications disciplines and judged by independent agencies. This is your chance to benchmark your work against the very best in the independent sector.

From their creation, the Indie Awards have aimed to raise the profile of the independent agency sector by recognising talent and rewarding achievement. Prizes are presented for excellence, not agency size. No bias, no politics, no “Agency of the Year”- just the best work.

The Indie Awards are unique- each entrant receives personalised feedback on how their entries were scored by the jury, against each criteria. You will find out how your work was scored for insight and strategy, creativity, execution and results, relative to the average in each category, so that you can truly benchmark your work. 

"Extremely valuable feedback to receive, and share with the teams who helped create the work!"

The Indie Awards celebrate the spirit of independence and what better way to do that than by awarding a trophy that is not only beautiful but also, a means to creativity in its own right.

Handcrafted using traditional methods in the Highlands of Scotland, The Indie Awards whistles are a truly unique prize that will be a talking point in any agency’s trophy collection!
