There were 113 entries into the 2003 awards – the largest number ever. Convener of Judges was independent media consultant, Barry Williamson, who was named Media Personality of the Year in the 2002 awards.

Williamson commented on the high standard of entries and said they impressed the judges with “well thought out strategy supporting clear communication objectives, thinking outside the square, an understanding of their clients’ business, and a much greater emphasis on results and return on investment”.

“It was great to see media ideas based on strategic direction as opposed to “stunts” and even the Smart Media Idea category entries were linked to strategy”, said Williamson.
