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!
