More chances to be celebrated

Across more than 30 categories, the awards celebrate what excellent looks like in marketing and marketing leadership.

There are opportunities for you or your clients to be recognised as the best in their vertical sector, in use of a channel or in several ‘special’ categories that recognise those brands and marketers that are demonstrating true leadership

New sector categories such as healthcare and pharma have been introduced, while we have better defined categories to highlight excellence in sectors such as sport and hospitality.

Other new categories include Excellence In Segmentation, while those companies building brands over a longer period will be celebrated in the Long Term Brand Building award.

Meanwhile, a new award for business transformation judged by a panel of CEOs will reward the project that has moved the dial for the business, not just the brand.
