2020 Idéa Awards – Six projects take home the top honours

2020 Idéa Awards





Montreal, September 25, 2020 – The 1st Idéa Awards took place last night during a festive, effective virtual ceremony which showcased the most outstanding projects in each of the six disciplines. In what was the high point of the ceremony, the Grand Prix were awarded to celebrate the exceptional work of six agencies and studios. The awards also served as a reminder that the creative communications industry plays a major role in helping companies thrive.


Whether for the quality of their execution, their creative or strategic insights, their emotional impact, or remarkable business results, all the winning projects have stood out for the members of the juries.


“The quality and range of projects were impressive. They are creative solutions that stand out with tangible results for these brands. Furthermore, these projects are the proof that teams have worked tirelessly to leverage their creativity to the benefit of their clients,” said Dominique Villeneuve, President and CEO of the Association of Creative Communications Agencies (A2C).


“To come together as an industry and celebrate the best in each discipline is incredibly inspiring, especially in times such as these. Once more, the industry has shown just how enormous the creative talent is in Quebec. The winning projects, including those in design, are inspiring and innovative. This is a testament to the importance of our profession,” said Benoit Giguère, President of the Société des designers graphiques du Québec (SDGQ).


“The first edition of the Idéa awards lived up to its expectations! The winning projects, especially those in media, were agile, innovative, and delivered outstanding results,” added Véronik L’Heureux, President of the Conseil des directeurs médias du Québec (CDMQ) and SVP and General Manager, Montreal of Publicis Média.
