The Performance Marketing Awards will return to Grosvenor House Hotel on April 26 next year, marking the most outstanding industry campaigns throughout the year – and celebrating its tenth annual ceremony.

The awards will open entries to businesses working within all aspects of performance marketing, recognising those campaigns that have stood shoulders above the rest in regards to originality, innovation and execution.

An annual milestone in the performance marketer’s calendar, the PMAs have witnessed the rapid year-on-year horizontal growth of the industry, turning it into a celebration of diversity within our ‘niche’ as much as one of industry talent.

In its tenth year, marketers will be just as likely to see a content marketing campaign take home the Grand Prix – as was the case in the 2015 awards with 8 Million Stories – as they are to see awards handed to affiliate marketing, where the event owes its heritage.

With the date now set and the countdown to official entries now on, the expert panel of judges will be looking for those campaigns that disrupted their space and shook competitors with their brilliance – the industry’s success stories, performance marketing’s triumphs – whether executed on a shoestring or with the entire annual budget.

‘Opened doors’

“Whether you’re a long established affiliate network, a big brand advertiser or a new company on the scene, the awards should be part of your industry calendar”, says Top10’s commercial director, Julia Stent.

Top10 made its first appearance at the Performance Marketing Awards in April this year, winning ‘Best New Publisher’ – an accolade that Julia claims to have ‘opened doors’.  

“They’re the most highly regarded awards in the performance marketing space and we know the decision-makers we need to reach, both now and in our company’s future, take note of them”, Julia adds. called the awards a chance to ‘challenge the status quo’, while CAKE relished the ‘immediate and long-term benefits’ and ‘incredible networking opportunities’ offered by its global attendance.
