Initiative, the culturally-driven media agency within IPG Mediabrands, have awarded Evoke Media the Initiative Perth Media Partner of the Year Award 2018.
The Media Partner award program created by Initiative and now in its sixth year, culminates in a fun event for the industry where they present the overall Media Partner of the Year award which recognizes exceptional efforts and services provided by media representatives in WA.
Initiative Perth MD Luke O’Sullivan said: “We truly value the exceptional work our Media Partners do for us and our clients and we are unwavering in our commitment to being the best media agency they collaborate with.
“The media partner award, and the larger function itself are a little thank you from us to show our gratitude to the smart, challenging, market leading work that the media industry does with us.
“Evoke Media were awarded Media Partner of the Year 2018 for their collaborative attitude; Evoke media are simply a pleasure to work with, Elaine and Zane don’t just go the extra mile, they run a marathon for us on countless client challenges.
“Their proactivity and positivity have led to some of the agencies proudest work this year, and their continued investment in growing the media footprint in Regional Western Australia is exceptional”.
Evoke Media director Elaine Barry said: “Zane and I love working with the phenomenal professionals at Initiative. They are approachable with a refreshing willingness to collaborate on campaigns that go over and above for clients”.
The winners were treated to a “Ginitiative” day of food and festivities culminating in a private gin masterclass which invited them to explore a unique world of flavours and botanicals to produce their own bespoke gin.
