The AdNews Agency of the Year Awards return in 2021 to celebrate the best of Adland with new dates, awards and an exciting new presentation partner.

“The AdNews team is excited to celebrate the best talent in our industry this year with a comprehensive program of Agency Of The Year Awards,” said AdNews editor Assia Benmedjdoub.

“It’s time to raise a glass and acknowledge your exceptional work.”

AdNews is pleased to announce that TikTok has been named as a presentation partner for this year’s awards.

“TikTok couldn’t be more proud to partner with AdNews to re-present one of the most important events in our industry, the AdNews Agency of the Year award, as a real event,” said Brett Armstrong, general manager, global business solutions for TikTok, said.

“Last year TikTok opened a new office in Australia and built a world class team to support brands and agencies locally.

“We are thrilled to be in person with the industry at the Agency of the Years Awards to recognize all of the amazing work, creativity and culture that Aussie Ad-Land has brought about through difficult times.

“The past twelve months have been tough for everyone and from work it shows we have a lot to celebrate as we continue to see incredible resilience that has produced fantastic results for advertisers.”

AdNews would also like to thank this year’s supporting partners Disney Advertising Sales, Google, PubMatic and the associated partner IVE.
