RadiumOne took the bulk of the plaudits at the 2016 IPA Media Owner Awards, bagging four of the top prizes, which champion the industry’s best and brightest media owners.
The business scooped the top prize for Best Media Owner this evening (15 November) at the Bloomsbury Ballroom. To add to its accolade, RadiumOne also took home Most Improved Media Owner, Most Improved Partner and the Rising Star awards.
In total, 16 awards and 10 commendations were presented. Eight awards were submission-based, including Best Commercial Director and Best Technology, which were won by Dan Durling, agency sales director at Yahoo and Trinity Mirror’s Pinpoint technology respectively. The other eight awards were based on the results of the IPA’s Online Media Owner Survey (a combination of spring, autumn and year-on-year results) and saw Collective win Best at Innovation and Global Radio scoop Best at Cross-Media.
Pete Robins, chairman of the judging panel, IPA Digital Media Group chairman and co-founder of agenda21, said: “This fantastic set of winners are clearly leading the way in terms of excellence within digital media. These are the companies and individuals who provide the best levels of service and passion to their agencies and in turn help improve the online media owner landscape. Congratulations to all this year’s winners”
