Judging for the Media Awards 2018 got underway today in the Clayton Burlington Hotel with 42 judges presiding over a total of 287 entries that were submitted. Following the judge’s deliberations, a shortlist will be compiled and published next Tuesday, March 20th. Live presentations for certain categories will then be held on March 28th and 29th with the Awards taking place the following week on April 5th.
This year’s judging panel is co-chaired by Liliana Caro, chief marketing officer, Kinetic Worldwide and Claire Beale, global editor in chief of Campaign magazine.
The Awards, which are now in their eighth year, are open to all media and advertising agencies, media owners and brands on the island of Ireland. Tickets for the Gala Awards dinner are still available, although the organisers have said that the event will be a sell-out and early booking is advisable.
