strategy's Agency of the Year awards celebrates Canada's top creative, media, digital, PR and design shops. It begins with an open call for Canadian agencies to submit their best campaigns from the year. From there, separate cross-industry and cross-country judging panels mark the work online and in isolation, with each campaign given scores on strategic insight and creativity. Submissions for the 2018 AOY competitions will open again in May and June, with judging taking place in July and the winners announced in the fall.
