The Outdoor Media Association (OMA) recently held its annual Industry Awards ceremony at the Crown Sydney.
The OMA Awards highlight the achievements of industry professionals who have pushed the boundaries of Out of Home (OOH) advertising, and recognise the dedication and talent of individuals who continue to elevate the industry.
This year, a record 80 nominations were received, with newly appointed OMA CEO Elizabeth McIntyre saying, “The OMA Conference and Awards are an exceptional opportunity to showcase all that the OMA and its members are working toward and achieving. Since joining, I’ve been impressed by the unity of the industry and the dedication to grow the OOH channel as a whole.
“The Awards not only celebrate hard work and creativity but also reflect the innovation and vibrancy of this dynamic sector. Congratulations to all the winners and I look forward to seeing the continued evolution of Out of Home under their leadership.”
