Save the date: Stoppies is returning for another year

On 14 February 2019, the StopPress team will be showering the industry in love as we take a look back at the best of 2018 at The Stoppies brought to you by oOh!.

While the editorial team works to decide the winners, you'll get to have your say for the People's Choice winners.

Keep an eye out for the voting as it kicks off early January.
