Montreal, December 12, 2019 – The A2C and Xn Québec invites agencies, advertisers, producers, and digital content creators in the creative communications and digital industries to submit their projects for the Idéa and NUMIX Awards today.
Even though these two Award Shows are separate and are meant to showcase different categories of projects, they both exist within a common creative ecosystem. That’s why this year, they are teaming up to offer a special discount for combined entries. Applications sent to both Award shows will benefit from a 15% discount on the NUMIX AWARDS registration platform on numix.ca.
