What's AToMiC?

The AToMiC Awards launched in 2011 to celebrate the partnerships, programs and new developments that together build the Canadian media industry.

With brands striving to be more closely integrated with content, and technology also changing the way new entertainment properties reach audiences, the strategy marketing industry and Playback production communities have more in common - and both benefit from the best new ideas across Canada's mediascape.

AToMiC is an awards program that brings all the partners together and puts a spotlight on the projects that really challenge the media status quo. Spanning advertising, technology, media creativity and content categories, AToMiC winners represent the best achievements across Canada's media industry, the collaborations that show the way forward.

AToMiC Awards recognize the work of a media agency, digital agency or creative agency, as long as it is AToMiC in nature, meaning it blows up conventional thinking in some potent cocktail of advertising, media, technology and creativity. We're also looking for media company and producer-side innovation that takes content models and platforms to a new level.

We'll be celebrating the milestones across Canada's media industry at the AToMiC Awards show, and the winners - whose big ideas are propelling the industry forward - will be showcased in strategy magazine, as well as on strategy, Media In Canada and Playback online.


This year's AToMiC Awards will be taking place at the MaRS Centre on May 26, 2016. BUY TICKETS

Passion Projects

At the gala, we'll also be celebrating the one-year anniversary of stimulant's "Passion Projects" with a silent auction featuring all of the weird and wonderful things that keep creative folk busy when they're not hard at work in the agency world.

From slick threads and tequila bottles to quirky paintings and illustrated books, the auction will put the best of stimulant's "Passion Projects" right into your hands, with the proceeds from the auction going to NABS.


We have some pretty impressive loot so far, but we're still on the hunt for more. So if you, a friend, or perhaps even a foe (you can put your hard feelings aside for a good cause, no?), have a side gig worth sharing, drop Jennifer Horn a line at jhorn@brunico.com.
