Submit Your Candidates for the 2014 Media All-Stars [Updated]

Deadline for submissions extended to March 14 for an April 14 pub date

Updated: The deadline for submissions is March 14, 2014.

Adweek's 2014 Media All-Stars issue comes a little earlier than usual this year. 


As with previous years, Adweek's editors will select and profile 12 executives in the media agency world, including Media Executive of the Year and Rising Star, on April 14 in print, online and on the iPad. (Rising Star recognizes a young, non-vp executive who has achieved outsize success for his or her age—the candidate must be under 30.)

Media agencies that wish to nominate media planning and buying professionals for Media All-Stars should send separate submissions for each candidate (maximum 500 words each) to features editor Michael Bürgi at They can be submitted as a Word doc or a PDF.

Each submission should include the candidate's name, title and company, and make the case for why he or she is a Media All-Star. Each submission should detail the candidate's responsibilities, including brand clients, as well as his or her accomplishments for those clients and the agency.

Each submission should include results (sales and revenue growth, etc.) where applicable. Lack of relevant metrics to show that candidate's success will result in the candidate not being considered.

There is no limit on the number of candidates a company may submit. Selections will be made by Adweek's editors.
