#AOTYAwards

For an 11th year, advertising + marketing magazine’s Agency of the Year Awards returns to measure, reward and recognise Malaysia’s top-performing marketing and advertising agencies.

Judged solely by an independent panel of senior, client-side marketers, the awards once again offers agencies a fantastic opportunity to impress our jury with their outstanding products and services, business performance, people and perspectives.

There are 21 categories available to enter this year and you have until Friday 19th June 2020 to complete and submit your entries.


The Agency of the Year Awards will once again be held together with the MARKies Awards, rewarding the agencies behind the most innovative, creative and effective campaigns spanning Malaysia’s entire marketing services industry.

The MARKies Awards is the definitive creative awards programme for marketing and advertising agencies and will also be judged by an independent panel of senior, brand marketers.

27 categories across two main segments – Creative Ideas and Media Usage – are available for entry. The entry submission dateline for the Agency of the Year Awards Malaysia and MARKies Awards is 19 June 2020.

Finalists and winners of both awards programmes will be celebrated at a fabulous gala dinner ceremony in Kuala Lumpur that will be announced soon.

We wish all entrants the very best of luck with their submissions!

Health Advisory

[

Let us work together to minimise the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) by practicing responsible behaviours.

[

For your own health and safety, we advise you to wear your own mask during the event if you are feeling less than your usual self, have a low immunity or are pregnant.

[

If you are feeling on top of the world and would still like to wear a mask as a precautionary measure – please do!

[

Do avoid shaking hands and making physical contact. Remember to wash/sanitise your hands regularly.

[

Most importantly, let us not live in fear and panic. Instead, as a community of marketers, let us keep our businesses moving forward, for the benefit of clients, company and self. Stay resilient.

Our Care For You

For the purpose of contact tracing (if the need arises), you are required to produce your name card for us to register your attendance.

U

All event attendees will go through a temperature screening. Anyone with a temperature of more than 37.5 degrees Celsius will not be allowed to participate in the event.

Hand sanitisers will be provided by the hotel venue (when available).

Lighthouse Independent Media places your health and safety as our utmost priority.

We are closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19 and will comply with directives for event organisers from the Ministry of Health.

Our teams are also in touch with our event stakeholders regularly.

Should the situation warrant us to postpone our event, we will inform all stakeholders accordingly.

If you have purchased seats or a table for the gala dinner and awards ceremony and there are staff or guests who are unable to attend on the new date given, you may replace those seats with other staff or guests who can attend on the new dates.
