The Categories

You can enter into any of the 21 award categories, in 3 different category sections: 

  • Vendors 

  • Industry and people (agency and client-side) 

  • Martech deployment. 

If you’re entering multiple categories… 

Make sure you tailor your entries to the category you’re entering. Judges hate to see entries that look as though they’ve been written for something else. It comes off as lazy or as if you’re playing a numbers game.

The judging process

Judging is conducted through a series of live, face-to-face judging sessions with attendees comprised of senior marketers with an interested in and experience of martech – mostly clientside or in-house marketers.The panels are refreshed each year, to maintain the integrity and vitality of the judging process.

The judging process is entirely independent from the management of the awards to ensure the highest standards of objectivity and integrity are maintained. An independent chairman – marketing consultant Shane Redding – oversees the judging process, approves the judges and validates.
