McMillan Takes Home
Gold and Silver at the
Transform Awards North America

Good people to think with
Published 2017

When McMillan was asked to develop a creative campaign for the 2017 JUNO Awards—Canada’s pre-eminent music industry celebration—its response was, “Wow, what a great opportunity!” Then, it was: “YOW!”—a riff on the international airport designation for Ottawa, the host city for this year’s event and the city McMillan calls home. We used that to spark ideas for a range of signature assets that helped create buzz ahead of a weekend-long experience—and around the glitzy, nationally televised ceremony itself. In doing so, we won accolades from not only our client, but also many of those who attended the event last April.

Now, we’re delighted that our work for the JUNO Host Committee has also been recognized recently by several award committees in our own industry.
