About The Awards

Agency of the Year Awards

Since its inception, Advertising + Marketing magazine’s Agency of the Year Awards have sought to recognise and reward the very best agencies who are producing outstanding work for their clients, and who are pushing the marketing and advertising industry forward with ever-increasing innovation and creativity.

Judged by an independent panel of high-calibre, client-side marketers, the awards focus on the overall performance of an agency, rather than a specific campaign. With 14 categories recognising various specialisms, all agencies, large and small, have the chance to shine.

Each category will present a Gold, Silver and Bronze winner, as well as a Local Hero trophy to recognise the highest performing local agencies in each shortlist.

We are delighted to open the entries for our 2019 awards, with submissions accepted from all agencies based in Malaysia.
