The deadline to enter the Marketing Week Masters awards is fast approaching, with just a few days remaining until the 30 April cut-off point.
We have refreshed the categories this year, and have a jury made up of the biggest names and most expert marketers.
Open to brands, agencies, designers, PR firms and marketing technology companies, the awards cover every aspect of marketing from strategy though to execution.
Here are three reasons why you should enter:
An unrivalled jury of senior marketers in number, seniority and expertise
Our jury features more than 50 CMOs and specialists from some of the biggest and most innovative marketing organisations.
These include Waitrose customer director Martin George, NatWest Group CMO Margaret Jobling, L’Oréal UK & Ireland CMO Lex Bradshaw-Zanger and Claire Farrant, CMO of Lidl UK.
They are joined by Santander’s chief customer and innovation officer Saj Arshad, Little Moons marketing director Ross Farquhar, Bulb’s chief growth and marketing officer Lis Blair, Unilever’s vice-president of global ecommerce Claire Hennah and KFC marketing director Jack Hinchcliffe.
It will be reassuringly difficult to win
Whether you’re shortlisted or victorious, you can be sure you have been subject to a rigorous entry process and forensic jury. For every category, entrants will be asked to illustrate achievements against business objectives and show how activity serves strategy.
There are more than 30 categories in total, grouped together in three sections – sector, channel and special categories, which focus on individual and team excellence in tackling issues.
New categories for 2021 include ‘Digital Transformation’ which celebrates achievement in meeting changing customer needs and expectations.
Your success will be celebrated
Winners will be spotlighted on a dedicated page and their stories told to Marketing Week’s global audience of senior marketers as examples of best practice. Some winners will also be featured at the UK’s biggest marketing event, the Festival of Marketing.
Marketing Week editor-in-chief Russell Parsons says: “The past 12 months have been challenging to say the least. But in adversity, the marketing industry has delivered some truly transformative work. We want to celebrate that.
“By showcasing what the best looks like across the marketing ecosystem, we want to offer marketers insight into what constitutes highly effective marketing activity and leadership. Don’t miss out. Enter today.”
The deadline for entries is 30 April. The shortlist will be announced 19 July and winners unveiled in a September ceremony.
