Agency of the Year 2022 Shortlists: Digital & Design

The first batch of finalists for this year have been revealed, along with the juries who chose them.

Today marks the first announcement of the agencies that made it through to the shortlist for the 2022 Agency of the Year competition, along with the judges that assessed the cases, starting with Digital and Design.

For the Digital and Design categories, each agency was evaluated on a body of work comprised of three cases they believe are their top performers over the past year. Digital AOY focuses, as the name suggests, on digital-led campaigns that have broken boundaries using the creative and strategic integration of online media. Design rewards work that is stunning in both its visuals and innovations, from packaging and visual identity to brand platforms and websites.

The other category shortlists and their juries will be announced in the coming days.

After two years of online events, Agency of the Year is also returning to an in-person event for 2022. This year’s gala will take place on Nov. 1 at Koerner Hall in Toronto. For more information, please visit the Agency of the Year website.
