MediaCom named Agency Network of the Year for the fourth time in five years

MediaCom has retained its Agency Network of the Year title at the Festival of Media Global Awards 2021 and also picked up the Campaign of the Year prize for its work on Pedigree Dentastix in Croatia.

In total the agency won 23 prizes, including the two Grand Prix, six Gold, eight Silver and seven Bronze awards. The MediaCom network had 43 shortlisted entries in total.

The Campaign of the Year was the agency’s work for Mars’ Pedigree brand in Croatia, where an outdoor campaign targeted dogs with creatively-optimised messages as they walked past digital billboards. The strategy not only demonstrated efficiency and effectiveness but also significantly improved sales.

“I’m thrilled that we have retained this title by delivering effective and inspired work from eight different markets on behalf of eleven different brands. Combined with the impressive spread of our shortlisted work, this success demonstrates that brilliant thinking is delivered from every office in our network and why seeing the bigger picture is a winning strategy for our clients,” said Nick Lawson, Global CEO of MediaCom.
