The Media Awards Winners Showcase 2022

“I saw the future of Irish Media and its name has many of yours written on it”.

As someone with a long passion for this business, my heart was lifted by many of the people that I heard …or heard about…. presenting their business strategies and creative ideas over the two days last week.
I and many of my fellow judges, reflected on the high standard of thinking, the ingenuity, a drive to push the boundaries and also the confidence of a whole new generation of media people, on both the agency and sales side”. Peter McPartlin – Judging Chair, Media Awards 2022
