The Drum Digital Trading Awards USA, in association with Media iQ, officially launched with a party in Digital Remedy's office in New York back in April. Since then, our programmatic panel debate and the judging day have taken place. Those impressing the panel to make it onto the shortlist can be seen here.

Chairman of the panel, Wayne Blodwell said about this year's entries "The standard of entries was exceptionally high, there is some amazing work which is really solving for advertisers challenges. The judging day was heated (in a fun way) and resulted in a stand off at one point and that's testament to the quality of the entries."

The results will be announced and the trophies handed out at the awards ceremony on September 21 at the Edison Ballroom in New York. Join us and book your table here.

We know how to celebrate excellence. We know how to throw a party. But more importantly we know how to give great companies the recognition they deserve.

Entries are closed for 2017 but Register today for 2018 and we’ll give you all the information you need for next year's awards.
