Shortlist announced for Transform Awards Nordics 2023

Nordics Shortlist

Returning for a fourth year, the Transform Awards Nordics remains the only awards programme in the region to celebrate the transformative power of brand strategy and design. Transform magazine is delighted to announce this year’s shortlist, the winners of which will be revealed in Stockholm on 30 August.

With projects hailing from all over the region, Transform Awards Nordics will be battled out this year across six categories. Fierce competition can be expected in the ‘Best visual identity by sector’ category, with four projects vying for the Gold award.

Elsewhere, Leipurin and Dragon Rouge has been shortlisted in both ‘Best use of a visual property’ and ‘Best visual identity by sector’, while Nepa and Fellow Studio has been shortlisted in both ‘Best brand evolution’ and ‘Best visual identity by sector’. NOFO Hotel & Wine bar and Efterklang has also been shortlisted in two categories: ‘Best brand experience’ and ‘Best use of audio branding’.

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.

The winners are to be announced in-person at an awards evening hosted at the iconic Sjöfartshuset, Stockholm, Sweden later this year on 30 August. View more information on the event here and book your table here.
