The Awards celebrates the achievements of some of the greatest brands around the globe. Uniquely, winners are judged through three streams: brand valuation, consumer market research, and public online voting. Each brand was named “Brand of the Year” in their respective categories.

The Awards is organised by the World Branding Forum, a global non-profit organisation dedicated to advancing branding standards for the good of the branding community as well as consumers. It organises and sponsors a range of educational programmes, and has joint collaborations with leading universities and museums. The Forum also publishes branding news on its website that reaches a global audience of over 4 million visitors.

“The Animalis edition of the Awards pays tribute to the achievements of pet and animals brands from around the world. Consumer votes count towards 70 per cent of the final score, so winning brands have to have built a strong relationship with their customers in order to win,” said Richard Rowles, Chairman of the World Branding Forum.

“Over 60,000 pet and animal lovers from around the world voted for more than 800 brands from 35 countries. Winning brands have had to work hard to stand out from the tough competition,” said Peter Pek, Chief Executive of the Forum.

The event was hosted by Stuart Freeman from Radio FM4 in Austria. For more information and the full list of winners, visit awards.brandingforum.org.
