Celebrating 10 years of industry achievement, the Performance Marketing Awards has introduced a new-for-2016 category: the Industry Ambassador Award.

While the ceremony has always paid tribute to the new talent entering the playing field, the time is right to reward those long-standing members who have helped build the industry from infancy into one worth over £14 billion worldwide.

There will just be one winner in this category, and it will be up to the performance marketing community to put forward who they believe deserves the title of Industry Ambassador.

Worthy entrants

Considerations for entrants may include individuals who have made strides of innovation into particular areas of performance marketing; figureheads who have steered the industry with dialogue, campaigned for regulation, or have helped spur the industry into the mainstream of digital marketing.

As a community-sourced category, criteria to qualify for the Industry Ambassador Award is entirely open to the industry – the choice is yours to make – but the PMA panel of judges will be casting a scrutinising eye over reasons behind entries.

Think someone deserves to take the title of Industry Ambassador at the awards’ tenth anniversary? Make your nomination here.

Nominations for this category close on November 20.
