The Microsoft Advertising Partner Awards: Congratulations finalists!

In honour of the powerful partners who help make Microsoft Advertising successful, we’re delighted to announce the finalists for this year’s Microsoft Advertising Partner Awards for Asia Pacific. The Microsoft Advertising Partner Awards will celebrate our Elite and Select partners for the incredible work they’ve done in 2020 across various categories. We have also introduced a new category — the Community Response Award — which celebrates the innovation and invention our partners have demonstrated during this unique time. This year’s Awards theme is “Forward Together,” which points to the importance of partnership, and how we move forward toward recovery and growth. As Microsoft Advertising evolves, these partners are demonstrating the ways in which they go above and beyond to ensure their clients are showing up in all the right places, in the most impactful ways.

Elite and Select tier members in Asia Pacific are all invited to join the special virtual Partner Awards on 25 February 2021 at 2:00 PM AEST, when we’ll announce our winners with all the celebration and recognition you’ve come to expect. We saw many outstanding submissions from across Asia Pacific this year that once again showcased the truly remarkable work we have come to expect from our partners. Elite and Select partners enrolled in the Partner Program are welcome to register regardless of finalist status. Please reach out to your Microsoft Advertising representative for registration information.

Categories and finalists appear below in alphabetical order. Our Global Award winners will be announced during the Elevate Partner Summit on 21 April 2021.
