About The Awards

An event like no other

Since its inception, Advertising + Marketing magazine‘s Agency of the Year Awards has given agencies the opportunity to place themselves in the running for the top spot in various categories, year after year. All agencies are invited to submit their entries, to be carefully judged by over 20 high-caliber client-side marketers based in Malaysia.

On top of the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards to be awarded for each category, local independent agencies that demonstrated work excellence will be bestowed The Local Hero Award.

The agency with the highest overall score will receive the prestigious ‘Overall Agency of the Year’ title. Finalists and Winners of Agency of the Year 2018 will be celebrated at a grand ceremony and gala dinner on 18 May 2018. Here’s your chance to showcase your work and get involved with Agency of the Year! Check out all the details on the website.

Why should you enter?

1. Your Moment To Shine

Agency of the Year Awards is an opportunity for agencies in Malaysia to take stock of their performance during the evaluated period, by getting the people that matters, senior client-marketers, to assess them.

2. Prove Your Worth

Winners of the Agency of the Year Awards have always won based on one constant; the agency preferences of client-marketers, which by itself is a good gauge for agencies to measure how well they have performed in the market.

3. Truly Asia

Other agency awards promote comparisons with the regional market, but Agency of the Year is designed specifically for the Malaysia market, celebrating the best that the country has to offer and can be proud of.

4. Looking at the Bigger Picture

The Agency of the Year Awards focuses on the overall performance of an agency, rather than on a specific campaign or ad. It encourages agencies to out-do their performance, eventually raising the bar for the industry.

5. Celebrate in style come 18th May!

Winners will be awarded at an impressive gala reception dinner, set to be a memorable occasion for teams and agencies to celebrate their successes. Winning the awards is an affirmation for the team that they have been doing a great job. It grants them the bragging rights, for being the best performing agency for the year, and is definitely a morale booster to teams.
