Judges Unveiled for Performance Marketing Awards 2016

Judges Unveiled for Performance Marketing Awards 2016

The Performance Marketing Awards 2016 has accepted its final entrants, marking the beginning of the judging process, and the introduction of the judges themselves.   

Our panel this year is made up of seasoned digital experts, handpicked from some of digital marketing’s foremost frontrunners; Arcadia Group, BT, Microsoft, Google, Ve Interactive, and many more.  

This team will be tasked with using their extensive knowledge of performance marketing to carefully scrutinise every single entry over the coming month, with the goal of producing a shortlist of candidates for each award category to be announced on March 1.

The judging panel will be dissecting campaigns with an eye on a number of traits, including clear objectives, innovation, uniqueness, relationship management, execution and ROI. Ultimately, they’ll be looking for those performance marketing campaigns standing shoulders above the rest.

Without further ado, let’s meet the judges for the Performance Marketing Awards tenth anniversary.

The judging process

Our panel of seasoned digital experts carefully review each submission against the judging criteria. Scores are collated and discussed with groups of judges moderated by our content team at our Judging Day, which takes place in central London each year.

After much deliberation a winner and highly commended entry is chosen. Not all categories will attract a highly commended entrant, though some may be given multiple commendations based on merit.
