AdWeek and Advertising Age Award Mediaedge:cia Media Agency of Year


It appears Mediaedge:cia is mopping up the media planning and buying floor having nabbed nods from both Advertising Age and AdWeek for best media shop of the year. To clarify, AdWeek dubbed the shop Agency of the Year. Advertising Age dubbed the shop Global Media Agency Network of the Year - a distinction worth noting as Adverting Age dubbed Starcom Media Agency of the Year (as in domestic).

Starcom has always been a winner in our book and we were lucky enough to see the inner working of the shop first hand. We're not as familiar with Mediaedge:cia but from all accounts, they're deserving enough of the distinction. Congrats to both.

Is this written by a 4th grader? As if the typos aren't bad enough, the author has the gall to say "we're not familiar with Mediaedge:cia". Here's a thought - get familiar, or ask someone who is!

Anywho - congrats to both companies, well done!

Wait a minute. Who's the 4th grader? I didn't write, as you quote,"we're not familiar with Mediaedge:cia"." I wrote, "We're not as familiar with Mediaedge:cia."

Note the "as" between "not" and "familiar" in what I wrote. There's a big difference between the two statements particularly when we just made reference to having had first hand knowledge of in I don't have first hand familiarity with Mediaedge:cia. Get it?

Of course I know who and what Mediaedge:cia is. Let me further spell it out for. I worked at Starcom. I did not work at Mediaedge:cia. Get it?
