Three gold, three silver and three bronze. We’re about business.

What are the MANNY Awards?

Quinlan belongs to MCAN, a loosely-affiliated network of small- to mid-sized advertising agencies located in non-competing markets across the United States and Canada. MCAN exists to allow these partner agencies to “share ideas, resources, creative talent and professional counsel” — valuable tools when you’re not the size of a Y+R or Wieden + Kennedy.

Once a year, MCAN affiliates hold an awards ceremony — the MANNYs — honoring the best member work in 54 different creative and strategic categories. This year, the event was held on Saturday, Jan. 17 in St. Augustine, Florida. Quinlan owner Gary Miller attended on behalf of the agency.

“It was our best showing to date with several gold, silver and bronze awards,” Gary says. “Our video projects were strongly received. It was a testament to Quinlan’s ever-improving creative product.”
