There’s more time for your Media Leader of the Year noms

The award entry deadline for the mediaverse's most outstanding leaders been extended by a week.

Offices are barren as industry workers take to cabins and beaches. We get it, everyone deserves a vacation, so that’s why we’re giving media agencies, companies and clients an extra week to get back to the office and submit Media Leader of the Year nominations before official judging begins.

The deadline for the awards program has been extended to 11:59 p.m. on July 20.

Top execs in the Canadian media industry can be nominated by a media agency employee, media seller, marketer or client who has worked with the nominee. Nomination entries should include three reasons why the candidate is the best choice for Media Leader of the Year.

This year’s winner will be presented at the Media Innovation Awards (MIAs) and will be recognized in the MIAs annual.

Entries for the MIAs awards program are due today by 5 p.m. EST. Both MIA and the Media Leader of the Year submissions will be judged by a jury co-chaired by Emma Eriksson, VP of marketing at General Mills, and Cathy Collier, CEO of OMD Canada.

Submissions, as well as additional information, are available online. In addition to the Media Leader of the Year, an award recognizing media partners will also return this year with Media Player of the Year.
