The IPA has announced the shortlist for its scheme which rewards best practice from online media owners.
The IPA Online Media Owner Awards (MOA) nominations have been announced with entries from Facebook, Channel 4, Google and eBay making the cut.
Now in its fourth year, IPA MOA is designed to showcase best practice in levels of service that online media owners provide to agencies, with the aim of raising the digital standard in general.
Twenty-three companies and 16 individuals are up for a total of 16 awards ranging from categories such as Best Online Campaign and Best Technology to Unsung Hero of the Year and Rising Star of the Year.
The judging panel was overseen by chairman Pete Robins, managing partner at Agenda 21 with help from Michelle Davis, digital communications manager at Fiat, JD Williams’ Ben Bisco, The Drum’s group commercial director Liz Hamilton and other industry experts.
Commenting on the announcement, Robins said: “An agency’s role is to be partner for its client. In turn we need good partners to help us do this.
“Our awards are once again shining a light on those partner individuals and companies that are leading the way of excellence within digital media, and those shortlisted are at the forefront of this.”
The winners will be revealed at a black-tie event on Tuesday 17 November 2015 at London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom, the full list of nominees can be viewed below.
