Categories at this year's awards include: Agency of the Year, Sales Team of the Year, Media Idea, Media Brand of the Year and Rising Star.

Judging will take place in September and be led by this year’s co-chairs, Steve Hatch, chief executive of MEC, and Linda Grant, managing director of DMG Media free division. The pair will be joined by more than 60 leaders from the UK’s media owners, media agencies and client-side marketers to judge this year’s entries.

Winning entries must demonstrate creativity and effectiveness decided through a rigorous two-day judging process.
 
Media Week editor, Arif Durrani, said: "With more events and awards ceremonies than ever before, to achieve this record number of entries is testament to the strength of the Media Week brand.

"Despite the prevailing tough economic climate, and the speed with which the media industry is having to evolve in order to maintain relevancy in the digital age, many agencies and owners are producing outstanding new solutions for clients. 

"In the five years I've been involved with these awards, it's really interesting how far many of the agencies and owners have moved away from business models that once formed the bedrock of their business.

"This year's celebration will provide a good snapshot of the current direction of travel for those working in radio, TV, outdoor, newspapers, magazines, social media, cinema, mobile and beyond. If you work in the media, nights do not get any bigger than this."

Hatch added: "A record year for entries and I can't wait to see what we've invented over the past twelve months  - who can doubt that media agencies and owners are leading the creative charge."

This year’s Media Week Awards will be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 24 October.
