Press Release - Winners announced at the annual Digital Accountancy Awards 2018

London, 17th October, 2018 The Accountant & International Accounting Bulletin have revealed the winners for the 6th annual edition of the magazines joint awards. This year’s winners were commemorated at a gala dinner ceremony at the Waldorf Hilton, London on Thursday 04th October 2018.

The awards celebrate the best among the accountancy market globally that are successfully serving their clients through innovation and thought leadership as well as the best among the accountancy profession globally that are strengthening the profession relevance in its mandate to serve the public interest.

There were 19 contested award categories alongside a special award presented by The Kazarian Center for Public Financial Management.

As such this year’s special award sought to recognise the work of those who have sought to improve transparency and accountability by asking the hard questions and questioning the dominant apparatus of truth, recognising that accountancy goes beyond debit and credit and is a moral and political practice rather than a technical one. The award went to accountancy Franciscos Koutentakis and UniLEO.

CPA Canada scooped up one award – Communication Campaign of the Year 2018 - Professional Body. Meanwhile  Auren International won Sustainability Champion of the Year 2018

The awards were preceded by an all-day conference that debated the increased impact of technology on the accountancy profession and its practice. Speakers and industry experts gathered to discuss how technology impacts services, recruitment and processes within the firms, but also what will be the profile of tomorrow's clients.
