REVEALED: Campaign US Media Awards 2021 winners

The inaugural awards celebrate creative and effective work and talent across media planning, buying and sales.

The media landscape is more fragmented and complicated than ever. 

For those who work in the field, keeping up is a constant, fast-moving effort. From new social platforms to the shift to streaming, media planners, buyers and sellers must always be on their toes. 

That’s why Campaign US is honoring media professionals for the first time this year. Our media awards program celebrates groundbreaking work and talent in the space driving efficiencies and effectiveness for clients, and breaking through the clutter in creative ways. 

“Media is the vessel by which consumers experience and engage with brands and creativity,” said Campaign US editor Alison Weissbrot. “Today more than ever, it’s essential for brands, agencies and sales teams to understand how consumers are interacting with different media channels and create experiences that meet them where they are. We’re excited to celebrate the great talent in the industry making that possible.” 

Thank you to our jury chair, Lisa Valentino, EVP of client and brand solutions and addressable enablement at Disney, and our panel of judges from across the media ecosystem, for their hard work and dedication to this program.
