Finalists for the 2017 Media i Awards announced

Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Sydney this November

The Media i Awards, scheduled to be held in Sydney on November 15, are the culmination of 2,011 media agency peers voting for the individuals and teams they believe achieved excellence in media sales.

Each agency respondent voted for their best media sales teams and representative in the respective channels they engaged in during 2017.

This year’s Media i Awards finalists will compete in the following categories:

• National Sales Team of the Year
• Sales Team of the Year by Market (NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia & South Australia)
• Sales Person of the Year – by Market, by Category (Television, Digital, Outdoor, Magazines, Newspaper, Radio)

National sales teams nominated this year are ARN, Nine [Digital], News Corp Australia, oOh! Media, Spotify and Val Morgan Cinema.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney.

Charles Parry-Okeden, CEO Media i, commented: “The Media i Awards not only recognise the professionalism and excellence of sales teams and individuals, but the success they achieved for clients in collaboration with media agencies.

“The popularity and importance of the Media i Awards has been proven once again with this year’s voting up on last year [2016] and reflecting over 80% of the media owner facing agency fraternity. Finalists should feel immensely proud of their nomination,” said Chris Winterburn, managing director, Media i.

This year’s Media i Awards have once again been well supported by the media industry including the Media Federation of Australia, Carat, Initiative, IPG Mediabrands, KWP! Media, OMD, PHD, Posterscope, The Media Store, UM, Starcom and Vizeum.

Andrea Ingham, Spotify head of sales ANZ, commented:

“We are absolutely thrilled to have secured eight nominations across five categories in this year’s Media i Awards.

“To have people nominated in markets we don’t reside in is an incredible achievement and a testament to the hard work our team has put in to better service agencies and clients across the country.

“Our nomination for National Sales Team of the Year against businesses who have hundreds of sales people across these regions is unprecedented. I couldn’t be prouder of my team and all their achievements this year.”
