Banfield Wins Coveted Agency of the Year Award

Earlier this summer, Banfield got a surprise in-person delivery of six Excel Awards from the Ottawa chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).

Being recognized locally by our peers, for marketing, communication and creative excellence was something worth celebrating. Turns out, it was only the beginning.

During its June 25th Season Closer and AGM, IABC Ottawa announced that Banfield had been named Mid-size Agency of the Year — making us the first ever recipients of this coveted award.

“The Agency of the Year is chosen based on entries to the awards program and how they score based on the international seven-point scale,” explains IABC Ottawa Past President Tara Lapointe. “So the more awards, the better rated, the more the agency is rewarded.”


We would like to thank IABC Ottawa, as well as our clients and our team, for helping make 2015 a very good year for us on the awards front.

About the Excel Awards

The IABC Ottawa’s Mid-Size Agency of the Year award is a way to further recognize the achievements of a company which demonstrates a commitment to excellence and professionalism. To be eligible to win Mid-Size Agency of the Year, a company must have the highest number of winning submissions (Excel Awards) for that season and have a roster of 21 to 50 employees.
