German Brand Awards 2019: In search of the strongest brands and brandstrategists

The German Brand Awards 2019 are now open for international companies, agencies and marketers to register. The German Brand Awards are presented by the German Design Council and the German Brand Institute and honour the most innovative brands, consistent brand management and sustainable brand communication.

The German Brand Awards discover and present unique trends – and not only help the winners, but the entire brand economy. Their gross reach of around 300 million contacts per year and the broad positive response among companies, agencies and service providers show how great the interest is in awarding prizes for excellent brand management. The awards ceremony and the German Brand Convention – a dialog format for knowledge exchange and networking – will take place in Berlin in June, 2019.

Interested companies can now register for the German Brand Awards 2019. They are divided into two contests: »Excellent Brands« honours the best product and company brands in an industry. »Excellence in Brand Strategy and Creation« recognizes the strongest campaigns, concepts and strategies in individual disciplines. Additional categories tailored to the competitions serve to identify the “Best of Best” across industries and disciplines.
