Judging Criteria

The judges will be looking for companies or campaigns that can clearly demonstrate success over the past 12 months. We suggest providing evidence to substantiate your entries including, but not limited to, metrics around KPIs, creative assets, links to your work or other items you feel speak to the quality of your submission. Judges will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry.

Each section of the entry will be scored based on the following criteria:

- Creativity

- Innovative thinking

- Consumer value

- Results related to KPIs

Entries should relate to business conducted from March 2016-March 2017. Interested in being a judge? Submit your nomination here.

The Judging Process

1. Judges score each question within the entry form based on the outlined criteria.

2. These are then combined to create an overall score for each entry.

3. All judges' scores are totaled and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlist.

4. Judges meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and then agree on the category winner.

The shortlist will be announced in April, 2017. The winners will be announced at the awards gala held in May, 2017.


All material will remain confidential to the judges, who are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Winning case studies may be used in post-event materials to promote best practice and permission will be sought from entrants before publishing these. Judges are not allowed to judge any entries submitted on behalf of their company.
