Now in their third year, The Media Awards celebrate the very best work, businesses and brands in the media business in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Last year over 600 guests attended the awards at which MediaVest won the Grand Prix while Carat picked up Agency of the Year.

While the categories for this year’s Awards have remained the same, a new category – Agency Network of the Year- has been introduced to reflect the evolving face of media buying and planning both in Ireland and internationally.

The organisers of the Awards – which are a joint venture between IMJ and the Brainfood Store – have also announced that RTÉ Media Sales is to become a Platinum Partner of the Awards in April. A number of other partners will be announced over the coming weeks.

Entry to the Awards is open to all agencies and media owners operating in the Republic of Ireland and/or Northern Ireland.  Work commissioned between Jan 1st 2012 and December 31st 2012 will be considered.

The closing date for entries is Tuesday February 26th 2013 at 6PM and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday April 4th at The Burlington Hotel, Dublin 2.
