UK's best MDs & Creative Directors sought for MiAwards Public Vote

MiAwards, the annual awards scheme organised by MiNetwork to identify the best independent agencies in the UK, is today launching its annual search for the Managing Director of the Year and the Creative Director of the Year, as part of the Public Vote section of the MiAwards.

The Managing Director of the Year award aims to identify an agency MD who has really moved their agency forward in the last year and was last year won by Gellan Watt of Thinking Juice after a year which saw his agency become part of the UK-wide Emerge Group. The Creative Director of the Year looks to reward the agency creative leader who has taken their agency’s creative output on to new heights of excellence, this award was last year scooped by Vince McSweeney of McCann Birmingham after a year which saw the agency significantly bolster its creative standing in the industry, winning a host of creative awards.

MiAwards is now seeking MD and Creative Director nominations for these two categories, which will then go forward to a public vote through The Drum’s website later this year.
