Research Awards search for rising stars in research

Take a look around your team and see if you spot any rising stars.

This award, in association with UKOM, aims to shine a light on upcoming talent in the media research industry. Nominated individuals can be client side or at a media or research agency, dealing with survey research, data science, analysis and reporting or combinations thereof. However, to qualify they must have less than five years industry experience in total.

Last year, the award went to Shannon Sinclair (pictured, main image), consumer insights executive at independent media agency the7stars.

Kate Rutter, Global’s head of commercial insight and one of the 2022 judges said: “Shannon stood out due to her passion for thinking differently about audiences, her ability to creatively bring these audiences to life, and her obsession to find out ‘who and the why’. After starting her career in Media Planning, she has used these skills to inspire planning using fresh insights at the7stars. Shannon’s enthusiasm for research has also led her to inspire others to develop their insight skills both within the7stars but also with her volunteer work with Archive of the Market and Social Research.”

This is a great opportunity to celebrate growing talent within your organisation.There are also plenty of other categories to showcase your media research merits; for the full list of 2023 categories go to the Mediatel Media Research Awards website.

This year’s panel of 12 judges for the 2023 Media Research Awards will be led once again by Belinda Beeftink, research director at the IPA.

The deadline is drawing closer so please get your entries in by Friday, 14 October 2022. If you have any queries about the awards, our team will be happy to help, just drop us an email.
