Facebook, Channel 4 and Spotify up for IPA Online Media Owner Awards .

Facebook, Channel 4 and Spotify are among the 54 entries to contend for this year’s IPA Online Media Awards that champion best practice from online media owners.

The winners will be revealed next month (15 November) when 27 companies and 16 individuals will see whether they have bagged one of the 16 awards up for grabs. These prizes span Best Online campaign and Best Technology to Unsung hero of the Year and Rising Star of the Year.

Some of the awards were judged by a panel of industry experts including Pete Robins, chairman of the judges, and founder of Agenda21 alongside Mark Smith, head of display at Maxus and Liz Hamilton, group commercial director at The Drum.

Of the standard of this year’s entries, Robins said: “This shortlist provides a definitive list of companies and individuals who are providing the best levels of service and passion to their agencies and in turn helping to improve the online media owner landscape. These are the names to watch and the companies to turn to.”
