San Diego-based Digitaria Interactive Inc. has been singled out as one of the top marketing agencies in the nation, winning the OMMA award for design/interactive agency of the year.

San Diego-based Covario Inc. won the OMMA search agency of the year award.

OMMA is a trade magazine for online media, marketing and advertising run by New York-based MediaPost Communications. It will present a dozen Agency of the Year awards Jan. 11 at New York’s Yale Club.

Awards were dominated by New York agencies, noted Digitaria executive Tom Siebert, who said that pulling down two of the awards reflects well on San Diego.

Digitaria is part of JWT, aka J. Walter Thompson, which in turn is part of London-based marketing communications company WPP.
