MEDIA WEEK AWARDS


THE FUTURE MAY BE DIFFERENT, BUT BIG IDEAS ARE TIMELESS
These are uniquely challenging and difficult times for everyone working in UK commercial media, so there is all the more reason to recognise and reward the great work, invention, collaboration and resilience that are the hallmarks of this industry.

Over the years we have often been told how important the Media Week Awards are to the industry. And in these challenging and somewhat surreal times it was more important than ever to celebrate our amazing industry and the people who work in it. 

The 2020 Media Week Awards provided us something to focus on, something to remind us of the great work achieved between July 2019 and June 2020.


Campaign also introduced four special awards to recognise the work of the commercial media industry in response to the coronavirus crisis. Proceeds from entries along with two of Haymarket Media Group’s other leading awards – Campaign Big and PRWeek - have donated nearly £40,000 towards ”NHS Together” a charity to support NHS staff and volunteers caring for Covid-19 patients.

This year's winners were announced in a two day virtual ceremony in October because of the continued need for social distancing. You can view all of this year's winners and watch both days by visiting www.campaignlive.co.uk/mediaweekawards


The Awards will return for 2021 opening for entries in April. We will look forward to celebrating with you in person next October. 


Congratulations to all of this year's Gold, Silver and Bronze winners and a big thank you to our sponsors for supporting us!


JUDGES


The Media Week Awards matter because they are judged by the toughest critics, your peers. Our expert judging panels are made up of leaders from across the media and marketing industries and we pride ourselves on our rigorous and objective judging process.

Included on the panel and new for 2020, the winners from Campaign's 30 under 30 competition will be invited to join our main panel bringing a fresh view to this year's Awards.

Nominations to get involved are welcome from across the industry, either for yourself or a colleague using the link below. The final judging panel will be comprised of an inclusive range of individuals to fully represent the industry. Our aim is to give as many diverse voices (women, BAME, LGBTQ+, different ages / seniority, people with disabilities) a chance to determine the results of this industry-leading event.

Co-chairs


ITV’s Kate Waters and Brainlabs’ Matt Adams to chair Media Week Awards 2020.

Kate Waters, the director of client strategy and planning at ITV, and Matt Adams, the global managing director of Brainlabs, have been named co-chairs of the Media Week Awards 2020.

Waters and Adams will oversee the judging by more than 70 industry leaders who will decide the most prestigious awards in UK commercial media, including the most coveted prizes for Agency of the Year and Sales Team of the Year.

Both Waters and Adams are innovators who have been willing to challenge the status quo in commercial media.
