The Creative Review Annual is one of the most respected and trusted awards for the creative industries. We celebrate the best creative work from the past year, and those who create and commission it.
This year’s Annual was judged by a wider jury than ever before, due to the introduction of a new, two-stage process. The first round of judging was done remotely, by more than 60 judges around the world.
From here, we had a shortlist, which was examined again by a team who came to CR’s London offices. These judges were Ana Balarin (Mother), Cheryl Calverley (Eve Sleep), Tarik Fontanelle (On Road), Paul Jordan (Engine), Kate Marlow (Here Design), Alex O’Brien (The Face), Craig Oldham (The Office of Craig Oldham), and Emma Perkins (Lego).
The judges picked six overall Winners, spanning architecture, advertising, graphic design and product design. And alongside those, more than 80 pieces of work were given Honourable Mentions. All of these projects can be viewed below.
Thanks to everyone who entered the Annual and to all our judges for the time and energy they have given to this year’s awards. Thanks too to the Centaur events and marketing teams for all their invaluable help and support.
