WOO Awards

Welcome to the World Out of Home Organization Awards

In 2015, at the Budapest Congress, the first-ever Awards were launched with 4 categories - Lifetime Achievement, Leadership, Technical Innovation and Creative Classic.

The category of Creative 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.
