Judging will take place in March and the awards will be announced at a black-tie dinner at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 1 April.
Last year, PG One, the specialist Publicis Groupe unit that works on Procter & Gamble, won Agency Team of the Year and The Guardian scooped Commercial Team of the Year.
The nominations for best international strategy for the 2020 awards will be announced later this month.
