It’s back - the best free learning event in the comms calendar - the UnAwards Winners Masterclass.

The UnAwards 2018 generated a record-busting 420 entries and the quality of the work submitted was higher than ever.

Attending the Masterclass each year is a unique opportunity to hear, first hand, the experiences, tips and lessons which lie behind the winners’ work.
