Media: it’s what drives what we do.

And, it’s what has driven the campaigns highlighted in today’s post onto the shortlist for the Media Innovation Awards 2018. The MIAs jury has narrowed down the work from across the industry that made the best use of audio, content publishing, experiential, video and more.

Already announced are the short lists for media insights, niche marketing, content and digital and tomorrow the final group of campaigns in the running to bring home those golden Ms will be revealed.

The MIAs Gala will take place Nov. 28 at the Carlu in Toronto.
