With an exciting range of new categories, this year’s awards ceremony will shine light on a more extensive range of strategies and talent than previous years.

Agencies, networks and platforms within the UK affiliate and performance marketing space can enter the available categories for a chance to be shortlisted for the grand prize. Entries will be rewarded and recognised by industry peers and the esteemed panel of judges who will be assessing each entry against the provided judging criteria.

There is still time to apply and gain the recognition you and your team deserve. Our entry kit will give you crucial information and tips on how to craft your winning entry, with help from our senior judge and ex Head of Performance Marketing at BT, Caroline Mulvihill.

The final deadline is just under four weeks away, so you still have time to get client sign off and prepare your winning entries. If you want to take advantage of our reduced entry fee, make sure to submit before the deadline for regular entries on Thursday 1st April 2021.
