"The digital branded content world is shifting at such a pace, with new innovations and creative thinking presenting themselves every single day. It's an incredibly exciting space and it goes without saying that these awards are a curation of the boldest and best work in this field. I'm looking forward to seeing entries that are embracing change - whether that be new tech, new platforms or just a completely different way of looking at something."
