Calling all media: New Establishment opens for entries

Submissions for this year's program, which recognizes junior- and mid-level professionals who are pushing the industry forward, will be accepted until Nov. 17.

ST.NewEstablishment_media-logoThe New Establishment has returned with a call for the industry to nominate a superstar within their ranks or even at another company.

The program recognizes junior- and mid-level professionals who are pushing the Canadian communication industries forward, with the Media category running in conjunction with Brand for 2021.

Today, NE Media entries are officially open for media agency professionals, with a deadline of Nov. 17.

You can nominate anyone – co-workers, rivals, bosses, employees or someone on your partnered agency team. Basically, anyone you think the industry should know about. Just make sure you can demonstrate their expertise in concrete terms (what tangible above-and-beyond steps did they take to push the business or industry forward?). And yes, you can nominate yourself.

We ask who they are and where they work (naturally) and the following information: How has your nominee made an impact at the agency and with clients, with accomplishments that can be clearly demonstrated with results? We’re looking for impacts that go above and beyond the job description, soaring beyond expectations. What are they doing that’s innovative? How are they demonstrating leadership, punching above their weight class and driving results?

Following the submission period, the nominees will be reviewed and selected by the Media in Canada and Strategy editorial teams, with the winners being featured in the Winter 2021/2022 print issue of Strategy magazine.
