This year’s Media Innovations Awards jury is a mix of media, agency and marketing pros with Cathy Collier, OMD Canada’s CEO, and Angela Scardillo, Best Buy Canada’s vice-president of marketing, at the helm as co-chairs.

“Our co-chairs have done an amazing job at gathering some of the industry’s most influential heavy hitters,” said Lucy Collin, publisher of Marketing. “As always, we try to get a good mix of participants representing various business sectors, and I think our jury this year delivers that.

“We also hope to have them all back in December when Marketing will host an Understanding Media Innovation Symposium where they can share the why behind the winning submissions and what it takes to win.”

“The decisions of the MIA jury are always deeply impactful on Canada’s media industry,” said Marketing editor-in-chief Tom Gierasimczuk. “The winning work is referenced and dissected by marketers coast-to-coast for the next year as an inspiration for successfully connecting with and engaging the Canadian consumer.”
