Hear From Our Publisher





 I would encourage all agencies across the MENA region to enter the Agency of the Year Awards as they are incredibly comprehensive covering not just creative output but business growth, new business, workplace culture along with diversity and inclusion.

 

The awards also recognises all the individuals behind the agency from the head of the agency and strategic leader through to the media planner, head of new business development and outstanding woman - the unsung heroes inside a modern-day agency. This is an incredible opportunity for these bright individuals and teams to be recognized.


We invite everyone to join these esteemed awards and wish them the very best!

Why enter?


Winning a prestigious Campaign Agency of the Year Middle East award will solidify your position as a leading agency in the region. This will set you apart from competitors and impress new and existing clients.


We're committed to ensuring that our judging is fair, trustworthy and ethical. We employ PwC to audit our judging process and ensure judges’ decisions are objective and based only on the entry in front of them.

We recruit senior brand marketers to our judging panel each year, who are your potential clients. Brand marketers bring an objectivity to the judging that other agency folk can rarely achieve. We're committed to building diverse and inclusive judging panels.

Our shortlist and winners will be given editorial coverage in Campaign Middle East - with over 16k newsletter subscribers and 88k page views monthly. Being shortlisted provides a unique platform to promote your agency and talent, and boost morale.

Most agency award schemes focus on the work produced – either its creativity or effectiveness. But we focus on business success: year on year growth, financial achievements, agency culture, diversity, equity and inclusion, and the people driving this forward.

"For those competing, my advice is to focus on authenticity and impact. Show us how your work has made a tangible difference, not only in terms of business results but also in terms of societal impact. Be bold, be creative, and never shy away from pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. The most successful entries are those that tell a compelling story, resonate deeply with audiences, and leave an indelible mark on the world.”
