The Media i Awards, recognising media sales excellence, were announced last night at an awards ceremony in Sydney.

Charles Parry-Okeden, CEO Media i, spoke at the ceremony of the importance of collaboration between media agencies and media partners.

“We are extremely proud of tonight’s event. The response from our finalists has been overwhelming reinforcing the significance of this initiative to sales teams and individuals across the country. We would like to congratulate all of tonight’s winners on their fantastic achievement,” said Chris Winterburn, managing director Media i.
