Updated Deadline: Applications Are Open for Adweek’s 2021 Media Agency of the Year

Apply by Dec. 16 for consideration

With a challenging 2020 drawing to a close, it’s time to look ahead to the promise of 2021.

In our world, of course, this means Adweek’s Media Agency of the Year awards, which recognizes achievement in an ever-changing landscape. Applications are now open for Adweek’s 2021 Media Agency of the Year.

In 2019, Omnicom Media Group’s OMD earned recognition as Adweek Global Media Agency of the Year for the second consecutive time. UM was awarded U.S. Media Agency of the Year as UM CEO Lynn Lewis went on to win recognition as Adweek Media Executive of the Year. Adweek Breakthrough Media Agency of the Year Canvas Worldwide grew beyond the automotive category with a series of new account wins, including being named U.S. media agency of record for Heineken in 2019.

This year presented a whole new series of challenges for media agencies, challengers and industry mainstays alike. In 2020, media agencies had to contend with client budget reductions and pivot quickly to changing media consumption habits brought about by the pandemic.

Did your agency rise to the challenge, standing apart from the pack? Then we invite you to apply for Adweek’s 2021 Media Agency of the Year to be considered for recognition in the Breakthrough, Global or U.S. category.

Please file your application via this form by the deadline of December 14. Update: Adweek has extended the deadline for submission to December 16.
