The OMA Awards shine a spotlight on the remarkable achievements of industry professionals who have tirelessly pushed the boundaries of Out of Home (OOH) advertising. They serve as a testament to the dedication and talent of individuals who continuously elevate the industry with their innovative ideas and contributions.

This year the OMA introduced two new award categories, ‘Excellence in Design and Construction’ and ‘Excellence in Field Work and Work Health and Safety’. Overall, the awards received a record 96 nominations, underscoring the abundance of talent within the industry and the OMA’s expanding membership base, which represents nearly 100 per cent of OOH companies in Australia.

The judging panel included Independent Chairman Charles Parry-Okeden, Steve O’Connor from JCDecaux, Adam Cadwallader from Motio, Laura Hall from Helio, Sara Lappage from QMS, Dee Madigan from Campaign Edge.

Elizabeth McIntyre, CEO of OMA, shared her excitement, commenting, “The OMA Conference and OMA Industry Awards offer an outstanding opportunity to highlight the collaborative endeavours of the OMA and its members. Since stepping into my role, I am continually impressed by the industry’s cohesion and dedication to propelling the OOH channel forward as a unified entity.”

McIntyre added, “The OMA Industry Awards not only acknowledge diligence and originality but also mirror the ingenuity and liveliness of this ever-evolving sector. Congratulations to all the finalists, and I eagerly look forward to witnessing the ongoing progression of Out of Home under their guidance.”
