The awards, which recognise great ideas, fresh thinking and craft, were introduced by current Creative Circle president Ed Morris, who later announced that he would be stepping down from the position, allowing Leo Burnett ECD Justin Tindle to take up the mantle.
It was a fantastic night, hosted for the third year running by Edith Bowman and topped off with a brilliant performance by Eliza Doolitle.
Congratulations to all of the winners and a big thank you to Creative Circle for a wonderful evening.
