Media Bounty wins top accolade at The Drum 2019 Business Awards

by Emma Tozer - November, 2019

Media Bounty won the coveted Grand Prix, as well as Social Media Agency of the Year and the Corporate Purpose awards at last night’s The Drum Agency Business Awards.

The awards recognise our unwavering ambition to protect the planet for future generations. We do this by working with brands with purpose and using social media to effect change. The judging panel said: ‘Media Bounty’s vision and values are really clearly articulated, yet go far beyond just words, going the extra mile to effect change for their clients and the industry at large. A great example of a business which exists not simply to make cash for shareholders.’

2019 has been an exciting year for Media Bounty. In addition to winning a raft of new clients, the agency continues to support World Land Trust, by donating money for every project completed towards saving critically threatened habitat.

It also co-founded the Conscious Advertising Network (CAN), which seeks to ensure industry ethics catch up with the technology of modern advertising, by, for example, eradicating ad fraud, producing diverse content, and ensuring brands are not funding hate speech or ‘fake news’.

And in a promise to offer a completely transparent media approach, Media Bounty announced a partnership with technology partner Fenestra to provide transparency in the ad buying supply chain. Any media buying rebates and commissions are passed back to clients.

Jake Dubbins, Managing Director at Media Bounty, said: ‘We are incredibly honoured to win these awards. I am so pleased for the whole team. To win for Social Agency of the Year and Corporate Purpose blew my mind. Then the Grand Prix was just off the chain! At Media Bounty, we are super proud of our work with clients like Bodyform, KIND and The Meatless Farm. But we are also proud of the work that we do beyond that. Agencies should be more than just the work and making money. We can really make an impact. Our work with World Land Trust, CAN and the countless charities the team volunteer for is a testament to that.’
