As you prepare your cases for strategy’s Agency of the Year competitions (more information on those here and here), those on the media side should also start to think about nominating an industry leader for our Media Director of the Year award.

Any media agency employee, media seller or marketer/client can nominate a candidate worthy of the title. The deadline for nominations is Monday, June 12. The judges for strategy’s 2017 Media Agency of Year competition will also select the Media Director of the Year.

Candidates do not need to hold a “media director” title as long as they are top organizational leaders. In your nomination, please include three reasons your candidate is worthy of the award. These can include the creation of a new division, landing big clients, scoring new recruits, or notable innovations on the media side.

Send your candidate’s name and a detailed list of accomplishments (approximately 500 words) to Mark Burgess at before end of day on Monday, June 12. The award will be presented in November at our Agency of the Year gala.

Last year’s Media Director of the Year winner was IPG Mediabrands Canada CEO Harvey Carroll (pictured above).
