Digital Out-of-Home Awards Judging Methodology:

MediaPost has created the Digital Out-of-Home Awards to honor the most innovative and effective advertisements in the realm of digital-out-of-home media.

Our judging panel consists of experts from the fields of advertising, marketing, digital technology and outdoor media.

By the time a Digital Out-of-Home Awards entry reaches the winner’s circle, it has survived two rounds of judging. Round One consists of the MediaPost editorial team reviewing and judging each of the categories. Our editors handpick two-three finalists per category and then send the results to the Digital Out-of-Home Awards judges, who will review the three finalists from each category and ultimately name a winner for each.

If you are interested in becoming a juror for the Digital Out-of-Home Awards, contact Laura Daly.
