Idéa Awards



Montreal, August 20, 2020 – The Association of Creative Communications Agencies (A2C), in partnership with the Conseil des directeurs médias du Québec (CDMQ) and the Société des designers graphiques du Québec (SDGQ), is happy to announce that the Idéa Award Show will take place on September 24th at 7:30 pm. To allow the entire industry to attend the ceremony where the best projects of the year will be rewarded while maintaining social distancing, this 1st edition will be broadcast simultaneously online and at the Ciné-parc St-Hilaire.

The event will reward the winners from each of the following categories: Craft/Production, Advertising, Design, Media, Digital and Technology, and Business Results and Strategy.

Even though our original plan to hold the ceremony in person was no longer feasible, we believed it was important for us to celebrate in a way that truly showcases the talent of our industry and the quality of the projects submitted. There are two ways for people to watch the ceremony: they can do so online from the comfort of their own home or with a few colleagues at the drive-in theatre. This event is sure to be a turning point in the industry’s recovery,” said Dominique Villeneuve, President and CEO of the A2C.

The list of finalists will be published on September 3rd in La Presse+. Mark this date in your calendar and be among the first to see which projects made the cut!

The A2C would like to thank its precious partners – Québecor, La Presse, CBC & Radio-Canada Solutions Média, Bell Media, Le Devoir, The TEAM Companies, Normes de la publicité, Grenier aux nouvelles, Infopresse and le bec – as well as its collaborators – Compagnie et cie, Altitude C, Sid Lee, Gimmick and Consulat – who have all made the 1st edition of the Idéa Awards possible.
