The IPA’s Media Owner Awards shortlist has been revealed, with twenty seven companies and sixteen individuals nominated, including Aol, ITV, Twitter and The Guardian.

The shortlist includes categories such as Best Cross-Media Campaign, Best Online Campaign, Rising Star and Best Media Owner.

Pete Robins, chairman and managing partner for the IPA Digital Media Group, Agenda 21, said that there had been an evolution in the awards entries for this year.

"Whilst we were extremely pleased to see a big jump in the volume of entries in every category, what was also evident was the effort people put into entering," he explained.

"The overall standard was notably higher than before which made the judging all the more difficult but rewarding. The winners this year are certainly worthy recipients."

Winners of the IPA Media Owners Awards will be announced at a ceremony on 19 November at Supernova, on Embankment Gardens in London.
