Jury announced for 2021 AToMiC Awards

The pros awarding the most game-changing work are revealed ahead of Monday's submission deadline.

More than two dozen advertising and marketing experts from various disciplines will soon bring their knowledge to the 2021 AToMiC Awards’ virtual jury room, where they will decide on the winners.

Now in its 10th year, AToMiC recognizes status quo-changing work spanning advertising, technology, media creativity and content from brands, agencies, media players and producers alike.

Joining previously announced co-chairs Jordan Doucette, partner and president at No Fixed Address, and Eva Salem, VP of strategic marketing at Canadian Tire, are 11 jurors from the creative, media, brand and tech sectors. They are supported by a shortlist jury that will help narrow down entries to only the best, most game-changing projects prior to a live deliberation. The full list can be found below.

The awards will be given out as part of the AToMiCon marketing summit, set to take place in April.

The next deadline for entries is Monday, Jan. 11, and more information about submission criteria and categories (including the new ?Digital Brand Experience? category highlighting pandemic pivots that took place in ecommerce and digital UX) can be found on the AToMiC website.
