2022 Transform Awards Nordics shortlist announced

Nordics Shortlist 2022

For the third time in its history, Transform magazine is excited to announce the shortlist for Transform Awards Nordics. Remaining the only awards programme to celebrate the transformative power of rebranding and brand development in the region, the awards evening will acknowledge world-class projects from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

This year’s shortlist sees fierce competition in a number of categories. As many as five projects will be vying for Gold in ‘Best visual identity by sector’, while four agencies will battle it out in ‘Best use of a visual property’.

Gothenburg-based design studio Ojity has been shortlisted for its projects with Aurobay, CEVT and IHT across two categories. Meanwhile, B2B creative agency Sköna sees five of its projects shortlisted, including in ‘Best use of copy style or tone of voice’ and ‘Best brand experience’.

An expert panel of independent judges focused on the level of creativity, innovation, strategic excellence and implementation from this year’s projects in order to determine the benchmark for excellence.

Andrew Thomas, Transform’s publisher and the award’s founder, says, “This is the third year we have solely dedicated a Transform Awards programme for the Nordic market, but it is the first we will be able to hold in-person. Despite the challenges agencies have continued to face, we’re very excited by the fabulous range of projects that have entered. We look forward to revealing the winners in August.”

The winners are to be announced in-person at an awards evening at the iconic Grand Hôtel, Stockholm, Sweden later this year on 31 August.
