This year there are nine Research Awards categories, which highlight business effectiveness and celebrate agency and client-side success.

The categories include Research Live Agency of the Year, In-House Team of the Year, Innovation of the Year and Best Place to Work.

Among the new awards are Best New Venture, which will recognise both those setting up new agencies, as well as individuals who have transformed or turned around an existing business or department.

This year the Young Researcher of the Year award has been split in two, with one for clients and the other for suppliers. There are also two Business Impact of the Year awards, one for the UK and one global.

The Research Live awards judging panel will decide the winners of eight categories, and finalists for Innovation of the Year will be invited to present their entry to the judges at a 'Dragons' Den'-style session.

This year, the judges will also have the power to spotlight some entries for the Covid-19 – Judges’ Special Awards, with the awardees chosen from among the entries to the standard categories.

There are also 14 awards categories in the Market Research Society (MRS) portion of the awards, including Inclusive Research and International Research awards.

The deadline for submissions for all categories is 5th July, and the winners will be announced at the MRS Awards ceremony, taking place in December.
