Adweek is accepting nominations for our Media All-Stars issue, which comes out May 8 in print and on Adweek.com.
Although who we are looking for has not changed (see below), how you submit candidates has. To enter candidates for consideration, you can go to www.adweekmediaallstars.com. Each submission costs $350, and there is no limit to the number of entries an agency can submit. Adweek will no longer accept emailed submissions—you must go through the above link to submit.
We began accepting entries on March 6, and the window for entries closes without exceptions at the end of the day on Friday, March 24.
Adweek’s editors will select 12 executives across the media agency landscape, including Media Executive of the Year (who must be at the president or CEO level) and Rising Star (which honors a non-vp-level staffer who has achieved outsized success for his or her age. The candidate must be under 30).
Each submission should include the candidate’s name, title and company, and detail long-term accomplishments as well as results delivered in the last year. It must include the candidate’s responsibilities including his or her clients, as well as results delivered (in sales and revenue growth) where applicable. Lack of metrics to show the candidate’s success will inhibit their chances of selection.
Best of luck to all who enter.
