The best of the best within influencer marketing descended on London to celebrate each other and another innovative year within the industry, as hundreds of attendees filled the Ballroom at The Londoner Hotel, in the heart of Leicester Square.
We proudly applauded each of the astounding award-winners throughout the night as the buzzing crowd came together to celebrate yet another stand-out year of trailblazing campaigns, courageous creators, and innovative influencer marketing success.
Who took home the trophies?
Ogilvy was the big winner of the night, taking home an exceptional 10 Gold awards in total and triumphing in some exciting, brand-new categories. The influencer marketing champion won the awards for: Most Effective Collaboration or Partnership; Best Use of a Small Budget; Best Food & Drink Campaign; Best Fashion & Beauty Campaign; Best Influencer Partnership in LATAM, EMEA, APAC, and NAM; and Together We Solved That.
Rahul Titus, Global Head of Influence at Ogilvy, also took home the final award of the night: Game Changer of the Year. Judges said, “Rahul seems to be a game-changing talent in the industry with a strong body of work overall. He has demonstrated a large amount of accolades overall and has contributed to some advances in AI marketing. Overall, an incredibly strong body of work.”
THE FIFTH also had a propserous night, winning major categories such as Best Team in Influencer Marketing and Rising Star of the Year with Courtnee Haley. Judges were more than impressed with Haley's work as a newcomer to the influencer marketing space, saying she was a perfect example of a rising star, having already made a huge impact in her time at THE FIFTH.
Another team with their finger on the Influencer pulse was Billion Dollar Boy, who celebrated their two big wins for the Candy Cave UK campaign in the categories Best Gaming Campaign and Best Use of Long Form Content. Judges were blown away by their influencer activations, making for a double-winner campaign. Judges called it "a very smart campaign that represented the brand's key message of 'fun', using the 'Candy Cave' creation to engage the target audience with the content they'd enjoy."
