Now in their 17th year, the Media Innovation Awards have grown into Canada's most prestigious and important media industry awards program.
The show honours the great and growing role media plays in the marketing mix and those responsible for the selection, deployment, and implementation of break-through advertising media programs.
All entries must have been conceived and created by people working in the Canadian media/advertising/communications industries. Entries must have run all or in part between September 1, 2015 and August 31, 2016. If not, entries will be disqualified at the discretion of the judging committee and Marketing. Marketing is not responsible for any entrant submission error. The decision of the judging committee and Marketing is final. Full credits must be listed for each entry. (Note: Credits as entered will be used for the awards book and trophies/certificates. Be sure to confirm before submitting.) All decisions by the judges regarding eligibility and awards are final.
Any work primarily conceived and created by people working in the Canadian advertising and/or media industry for clients outside of Canada, or that is executed outside of Canada, is eligible.
FRENCH LANGUAGE ENTRIES
Marketing accepts French language entries, but to ensure they are given full and fair consideration by the entire jury each French entry must be accompanied by an English-language translation. Agencies and organizations submitting French-language entries are urged to follow the practice common with major international awards programs and produce versions of commercials and ads that have been dubbed and re-typeset in English.
