German Brand Awards 2023: International Call for Entries 

Frankfurt am Main, 25 October 2022

Companies, agencies, service providers and marketers in all industries worldwide are now invited to register for the German Brand Awards 2023. Presented by the German Design Council and German Brand Institute, the awards distinguish the most innovative brands and best strategies for consistent brand management as well as long-term brand communication.

The German Brand Awards discover and present unique trends in brand management, increase visibility and attention for outstanding branding work and provide ideas for the branding economy as a whole. Their enormous reach and widespread positive reception among companies, agencies and service providers are testament to the highly relevant role that excellent brand management has. The awards ceremony and the German Brand Convention – the corresponding dialogue format for knowledge exchange and networking – will take place in Berlin on 15 June 2023. Accordingly, the German Brand Awards provide a forum for branding, communication and marketing experts and support the discourse surrounding current issues and strategies.

The German Brand Awards 2023 offer a range of categories in two disciplines. “Excellent Brands” recognises the best product and corporate brands in an industry. “Excellence in Brand Strategy and Creation” distinguishes the strongest campaigns, concepts and strategies in individual fields. On top of that, there are also cross-discipline “Best of Best” awards in 15 additional categories, while honorary awards for “Brand Manager of the Year”, “Start-up of the Year” and “Purpose Commitment of the Year” will be presented, too.
