In 2015, at the Budapest Congress, the first-ever Awards were launched with 4 categories - Lifetime Achievement, Leadership, Technical Innovation and Creatives Classic.
The category of Creatives Digital was added in 2017 and then, in 2018 the Rising Star category was introduced.
WOO Chief Marketing Officer Richard Saturley says: "These Awards have become the benchmark for excellence in Out of Home and following two years in abeyance because of the pandemic, it’s an honour to coordinate the task of choosing our latest winners.
New in 2023 was the 'Sustainability Award'. Focusing on the efforts taken to combat climate change from within the OOH industry.
Nominations can be made by WOO members or OOH Associations. Members can self-nominate, nominate an individual, campaign or technical/sustainability innovation relevant to the particular award categories, but are restricted to one nomination per award category.
