Agencies – it’s all about you!


The MENA Agency Awards celebrate everything that makes an Agency amazing. From creativity and design to digital and technology; from marketing and advertising to public relations and media – we reward exceptional agencies, campaigns and talent.

2022 Categories

12 Campaign Awards recognise and reward individual Campaigns created by Agencies across multiple business sectors and in specialist areas of digital technology, marketing, and PR.

20 Agency Awards categories have been designed so that Agencies are recognised and rewarded for their specialist skills and areas of expertise. Agencies that have multiple skill sets can enter as many categories as they see fit their competencies and which match their success.
