Here are the shortlisted entries for the 2015 Big Chip Awards

The judges apply a rigorous and demanding standard for shortlisting entries and have occasionally declined to shortlist any entries in some categories. This year they declined to shortlist any entries for the Best Digital Branding Campaign because they did not think they reached the required high standard for shortlisting.
