The Beacon Awards – CAANZ’s new shining light

For many years the CAANZ Media Awards have been the annual event that celebrates the very best of the media industry, rewarding great strategic insight, planning and execution in a rapidly evolving industry.

Given the changing nature of the media environment, CAANZ believe it is time to refresh and rebrand the Awards.
The Beacon Awards (or ‘The Beacons’ as they will no doubt become known) reflect the way media can lead a campaign and create success by ensuring it’s noticed at the right time, in the right context, by the right people.
