M&C Saatchi shortlisted for 5 Agency of the Year Awards.

M&C Saatchi has been shortlisted for five of the major gongs up for grabs at the B&T Agency of the Year Awards.

The shortlists give M&C Saatchi a great chance of defending three of the titles it won at last year’s awards where it made a clean sweep, including the coveted best-in-show Agency of the Year title.

It is again in the running for the National Advertising Agency of the Year, Employer of the Year (over 100 employees) and NSW Agency of the Year awards.

In addition its customer relationship specialist arm LIDA is a finalist for DM Agency of the Year while its innovation hub Tricky Jigsaw is shortlisted for the Best Specialist Agency of 2015.

The next step to AOTY glory is in-person presentations to the juries on 30 October with award winners announced at a gala presentation at the Melbourne Town Hall on 4 December.
