Event-Icon-connies MediaTel’s Connies Awards recognize service providers, content developers, and vendors that make significant contributions to the Connected TV industry. Steve Hawley of tvstrategies was a Judge for the Awards, which were given in a ceremony at the Connected TV World Summit in London in May 2017.

The Connies recognise innovation and the emerging best practice from across all sectors of the media landscape, showcasing initiatives that meet the needs of leading media businesses and practitioners in delivering value to the ever more connected consumer. The Connies brings together the established UK Connected Consumer Awards from Mediatel and internationally based Connected TV Awards from Videonet, which is now part of Mediatel Events.

Entrants include media owners, broadcasters, agencies, brands, service or technology providers and innovators at large. The awards saw ten award categories, plus overall UK and International Grand Prix winners.
