Celebrating creative resilience

Apr 11, 2022

Return of the iconic CMA Awards Gala

It’s only 221 days to our iconic awards night, and we are more than excited to be returning to the Westin Harbour Castle on November 18, 2022.  

Themed “THE RISE”, the 2022 Awards Gala will be a wonderful way to celebrate the best of the Canadian marketing profession. In person! 

This year’s co-chairs are Allison Litzinger (Vice President Marketing, The Bay) and Christopher Andrews (President & CEO, BBDO Canada), in keeping with our practice of bringing leadership from both the brand and agency communities. And speaking of icons, we welcome back Rick Campanelli as host for his fifth straight year.

You might be wondering why am I writing about a November event when spring has not even arrived? Because this is your chance to be part of it: 

  • Sign up to be a judge. Qualified individuals can apply here. Applications are open until June 1.
  • Get working on those entries. Our portal will open on May 2. We are expecting a record number this year, so get yours in early

I have talked frequently over the past two years about navigating the challenges the pandemic created for our profession. As momentum builds towards a return to normal, let’s rise together to celebrate our collective resilience, by honouring creative talent and epic campaigns. Unleash your best work and get ready for an unforgettable evening!
