The fifth edition of the MENA Digital Awards (MDA), the first awards programme to honour digital efforts and innovation in the region, will return to Dubai on 9th May 2018 at the Westin Mina Seyahi, with a ceremony that will unite the MENA’s top digital marketing and creative industry leaders. MDA has also announced the official deadline for submissions, which falls on 4th March 2018.
Najla Semaan Mazboudi, Founder of MDA and CEO of SpotOn Media Services and Events — the company behind the awards programme — commented: “Year on year, the MDA sets a gold standard for digital and media excellence in the MENA region, acting as a catalyst for innovation, creativity and transformation in one of the world’s fastest-growing and changing industries. The MDA was launched to recognise and celebrate those responsible for creating digital marketing campaigns that have a real impact and drive our sector onto new heights, proactively endorsing digital as a worthy marketing channel.”
The MDA invites all digital players, from clients and agencies to producers and marketers, to participate in the exciting awards programme by submitting any form of technical or creative digital work across all communication disciplines. The awards categories are clustered under seven groups — Performance, Mobile, Social Media, Integrated, Special, Digital Assets and Digital by Sector — encouraging entries from all disciplines, channels and industries.
The MDA is guided by international standards and is the only awards show with an official independent audit partner. All entries are judged by a jury of renowned digital experts from across the world, ensuring a best practice process that recognises only the best work.
