First Round of Performance Marketing Awards Judges Announced

The first round of judges for this year's eagerly anticipated Performance Marketing Awards has been unveiled - and includes a whole host of key industry figures from the likes of Facebook, Google, Criteo, Adobe and more.

The senior figures on the judging panel will use their wealth of experience to pick out not only the performance marketing companies that have excelled, but of course, those campaigns and employees that have proved a cut above the rest.

With the clock ticking ahead of the January 24* deadline for entries, it signals the start of the period in which our esteemed judges start clearing their schedules in preparation for the tough task of selecting the very best from performance marketing’s elite.

*Late entries close January 31 2014.

There was a 43% increase in the number of entries in 2013 and, looking at the calibre of performance across the industry in the past thirteen months, judges are readying themselves for a busy few weeks. The judging period opens once the January 31 late entry deadline has passed and will run until the shortlist is announced on March 12 2014.

With this in mind, we are delighted to introduce the first round of Performance Marketing Awards Judges for 2014, who have the complex job of separating the exceptional from the excellent.

It goes without saying that all judges sign confidentiality agreements and are carefully vetted before being assigned to a category, to ensure that there is no possible conflict of interest. The full judging criteria can be found online.

The stature of this year’s judges bears testament to the quality of performance marketing that we have seen in the past thirteen months, and the level of entries that we have already received.

If you produced or were a part of a truly exceptional performance marketing campaign in 2013 then you have until January 24 2014 to submit your entry. There is a further week until late entries close the following Friday - additional charges apply.

If you have any questions about the judging process or entries, then please don’t hesitate to email Sarah Parsonage - sarah.parsonage@performancein.com - or call the office on 0117 203 3010.
