Award-winning executives


Midas’ grand jury brings together award-winning executives from prominent global agencies with diverse areas of expertise within the industry, as well as respected internationally recognised experts in financial policy and communications from prominent companies around the world.

The Midas jury offers their perspectives not only on how well a message is delivered but how it is received. Midas awards Gold and Silver Ingots to the highest scoring entries and presents the Grand Midas to the entry considered “Best in Show.” The results of the juries are parsed in an annual rankings brief, The Midas Report, —a veritable whos-who in the world of financial services advertising that includes the 3 individual reports: Agency, Brand and Network.

The final deadline to enter the 2018 Midas Awards is 16 November 2017. Entry details, including competition categories and rules and regulations can be found on the Midas Awards website. To enter, click here.
