"We are thrilled to announce the shortlists for Campaign US' inaugural Agency of the Year Awards," said Campaign US Editor Lindsay Stein. "Our extensive jury of marketing executives had the incredibly challenging task of wading through dozens and dozens of impressive entries to narrow down the honorees. A big thank you to our judges for taking on that responsibility."

Stein added: "Congratulations to all of the agencies and individuals who have been shortlisted. The Campaign team can't wait to celebrate with you all - and find out the winners - at our black tie dinner on January 29."

Marketers helping crown this year's winners include: Burger King’s Fernando Machado as Judge Chair; Hasbro’s Jamie Gutfreund; Heather Malenshek of Harley Davidson; McDonald’s Steve Hill; MillerCoors’ Michelle St. Jacques; Judy Lee of Pinterest; Eric Lent from InterContinental Hotels; Spotify's Jackie Jantos; Marie Gulin-Merle of Calvin Klein and PVH; Julie Winskie of Guardian Life; Feeding America's Catherine Davis and; Brent Mitchell of E!.
