Data Storytelling Awards return and are open for entry

The Data Storytelling Awards celebrate excellence in the use of data tools and techniques in insight and analytics.

Marketing Week’s Data Storytelling Awards are back for a third year, bringing the industry’s outstanding data strategies, people and brands into the well-earned spotlight.

Powered by Marketing Week in collaboration with Marketing Week Live and The Insight Show, the awards are unique in shining a spotlight on excellence in the use of data tools and techniques in insight and analytics.

There will be 15 unique categories including loyalty, data integration and customer integration. You can see all category information and criteria here.

The awards will be judged by a panel of brand-side marketers and senior data professionals, including Orlando Machado, global director of customer analytics and data science at Aviva; Claire Phillips, head of brand strategy at ITV; Simon Kaffel, head of data transformation EMEA at HSBC Retail Banking and Wealth Management; and Matt Stockbridge, growth analytics manager at Mondelēz International.

Marketing Week editor Russell Parsons says: “Data is at the heart of every success story in marketing. The Data Storytelling Awards will spotlight and celebrate those setting the standards in data.

“It’s a great opportunity to get your work and your teams in front of our judging panel of senior marketers and data professionals.”

Last year’s big winners include Shell’s ‘Pump Challenge’, which won the Grand Prix award and Marks & Spencer’s global director of loyalty and customer insight Nathan Ansell who went home with the coveted ‘Data Professional of the Year’ award.

The deadline for entries is 8 September. For more information and to enter go to the Data Storytelling Awards site.

The awards will take place on 6 March at the Hurlingham Club in London on the eve of Marketing Week Live and The Insight Show, which take place on 7 and 8 March at Olympia in London.
