MEDIA WEEK AWARDS


THE FUTURE MAY BE DIFFERENT, BUT BIG IDEAS ARE TIMELESS
We are all in uncharted waters, awash with a backdrop of adversity and economic uncertainty. And each of us, individuals and businesses alike are adapting and responding as we see fit.

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 may be more important than ever to celebrate our amazing industry and the people who work in it. 

We hope this year's Media Week Awards provide something to focus on, something to remind us of the great work achieved over the past 12 months and something to look forward to and celebrate with your teams, with your colleagues, your business and the wider industry later this year.


Following advice from the government, judging this year will all take place remotely over video conferencing for all categories. We will not require shortlisted entrants to provide supplementary videos in the second stage and instead will rely on original written submissions to determine this years winners. Opportunities will be available should you wish to provide additional information.


Those shortlisted for Agency of the Year, Media Owner of the Year and Rising Star will all conduct their presentations over video conferencing as well. While this is different to previous years, the safety and wellbeing of our audience and team remains our highest priority. 


Campaign has also introduced four special awards to recognise the work of the commercial media industry in response to the coronavirus crisis.


So put forward your great campaigns, showcase the people behind them and join us in celebrating the successes that shouldn’t be overshadowed by difficulty.


We look forward to celebrating the industry’s achievements in October.

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.
