Judges announced for 2019 AToMiC Awards

An online jury has been added this year to recognize the most forward-thinking work in marketing and media.

It’s less than a month before the deadline for entries to the 2019 AToMiC Awards, and the two juries that will be evaluating the work have been revealed.

The AToMiC Awards recognize successful collaborative work across Canada’s media and marketing industries, including advertising, tech, media creativity and content. This year’s awards also include a handful of new categories: AToMiC Diversity, Immersive Reality and AI, as well as the recently added Cannabis Branding category.

Joining previously announced co-chairs Nancy Crimi-Lamanna (CCO at FCB Toronto) and Lucile Bousquet (senior director, marketing and communications at Ubisoft) are 13 senior leaders from across the advertising, brand, media and digital spaces. Also new this year is the addition of an online jury, nine pros who are experts in their field and will add their insight to determine a shortlist in the first round of judging.

The deadline for entries to the 2019 AToMiC Awards is Sept. 28, with an awards gala set to take place in March. More information can be found on the AToMiC website.

UPDATE: Due to an unforeseen conflict, Lucile Bousquet will no longer be able to co-chair the 2019 AToMiC jury. She will remain a juror, however, and Jason Chaney, CCO of Koho Financial, will be taking over her co-chair duties.
