MAOY submissions due Friday

The clock is ticking to submit your intent to enter Media Agency of the Year.

There are two more days to submit your agency for consideration in strategy‘s Media Agency of the Year competition.

Entries are due May 25 by end-of-day. This comes following an extension announced last week.

The first phase is an “intent to enter” phase. Agencies wishing to participate must provide a list of three campaigns that have appeared (or will appear) in the 12-month period from June 2017 to June 2018. The entries must include (1) the name of the client, (2) the name of the campaign, and (3) the dates when the work was in market. You can send this information by email to Jennifer Horn (

Campaigns must be Canadian (global campaigns must have run in the local market). No self-promotional work will be accepted. The editorial team will vet and approve each of the campaigns before opening up the case study submission period, which will run in June and July.

The entry fee is $750, payable when the cases are uploaded. (This is a cost per agency for each award category, not per case. So if an agency is entering both MAOY and DAOY, the total cost will be $1,500.)

The Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be revealed at the Agency of the Year gala this fall, as well as in strategy‘s end-of-year print issue.

The “double-dipping” policy also applies: agencies must submit unique campaigns for each competition. For example, an agency can’t enter the same work for a specific CPG brand in Media Agency of the Year and Digital Agency of the Year, even if the latter just includes digital-driven work that was a part of the overall campaign also entered into MAOY.
