2020 The Marketer Campaign Awards

2020 was quite the year!


The fact that you're still here is worth celebrating in itself tbh, and if your business is still operating, and you have a job to go to you're doing ok by 2020 standards.


So we thought we needed to celebrate - and to borrow a phrase from marketing maverick Jay Baer, "turn 2021 into Twenty Twenty WON!"


Plenty of amazing campaigns went live last year, despite more challenges to negotiate than ever before. Brands and businesses got creative and got to work making sure their audiences were getting the message.


And so, The Marketer Campaign Awards were born. This is an opportunity for your campaign to get some recognition, and for you to win some cool prizes!


How it works

This isn't a huge gala award night with a complicated and lengthy submission process. We wanted to keep it simple and easy to enter.


So all you need to do is fill out this form. We've laid out all the info we need to evaluate your campaign here for you so it's super easy.


If you have supporting creative or documentation you'd wish to include, simply email us on hey@themarketer.news.


Then grab your tickets to Grill The Marketer on Feb 25th, 2021 and join us and our panel of judges for the announcement of the winners and to collect your award and prizes.
