The finalists have been announced for the 2014 Media i Awards which will be held in Sydney on 11 November.

The shortlist is the culmination of 1,741 media agency peers voting for the individuals and teams they believe achieved excellence in media sales.

Each agency respondent voted for their best media sales teams and representative in the respective channels they engaged in during 2014.

This year’s Media i Awards finalists will compete in the following categories:

With voting reflecting near on 80% of the media facing agency fraternity, finalists should feel immensely proud of their nomination.”
