Facebook, Channel 4 and Spotify among IPA Media Owner Awards shortlist

Facebook, Channel 4 and Spotify are just three of 54 entries shortlisted for the 2016 IPA online Media Owner Awards that reward best practice from online media owners.


The winners will be revealed at a ceremony at Bloomsbury Ballroom on Tuesday 15th November. Book your tickets here.

In total twenty-seven companies and sixteen individuals have been shortlisted for awards ranging from Best Online campaign and Best Technology to Unsung hero of the Year and Rising Star of the Year. Eight awards are presented based on the results of the IPA’s influential Online Media Owner Survey (a combination of spring, autumn, and year-on-year results), and eight awards will be submission based.

Says Pete Robins, Chairman of Judges, IPA Digital Media Group Chairman and Founder, Agenda 21, “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.”
