outdoor Media Awards Event

Outdoor Media Awards

The Outdoor Media Awards, run in partnership with Campaign, celebrate the best campaigns in Out of Home advertising.

What. A. Year. It's safe to say 2020 was a year like no other. 

But, while the times might have been radically different, OOH was and is still here – finding ways to thrive, build trust and delivering for brands and people alike. 

And so, of course, the Outdoor Media Awards are still here helping celebrate the best of the best - those that harnessed the power of the poster in spite of extraordinary times, showcasing the incredible abilities of OOH. 

The Grand Prix winner will receive £100,000 worth of media space to use across Clear Channel UK screens.

2021 Winners

Our expert judges have once again dissected, deliberated, disputed and decided on the very best of OOH. All that’s left up to us to do is declare: your OMA 2021 winners. Congratulations you absolute superstars.

The Outdoor Media Awards 2021 shortlist is now live, congratulations to everyone on there! Have a look, see if you’re one of them, and vote for your Outstanding Contribution to Outdoor Award winner.

05 /  Categories

2021 Categories

We expect a lot of the entries we receive will be related to Covid-19’s impact on the outdoor industry and the campaigns that ran. We’ve deliberately decided not to have specific Covid-19 related categories. As ever, our judges will be sure to judge each entry on its own merit, Covid-19 related or not.

We will be sticking to the awards being grouped in categories to reflect the different disciplines of the outdoor industry and how we operate in both the wider community and media ecosystems.
