WHY ENTER THE CAMPAIGN MEDIA AWARDS?


Award-winning work creates huge additional value for clients

We believe that proper, transparent collaboration is critical to great work. When everyone believes they are creating award-winning work, and the conversations are transparent and purely in the interest of the work, you get more physical and mental support all round. And that makes the work even better.


Winning awards make clients famous and proud of the work they’ve done.

A famous client is a happy client who’s likely to stay with you or even in her or his role for a little bit longer. It also provides a platform for future business to promote your company and talent. 


Momentum matters

Win or lose, being shortlisted alone puts big smiles on people's faces. Good work always requires hard work, and entering will let your employees know you recognise and value those efforts.


Coverage in Campaign

All winners will feature in Campaign, read by over 8.400 people, and across CampaignLive.co.uk, which receives 961K unique users and 2.4m page views monthly
