The International Performance Marketing Awards take place the night before PI LIVE London on October 18 2021 which means it’s time for PerformanceIN and the IPMA team to start searching for an esteemed judging panel, calling PerformanceIN readers and partners to help shape a best in class lineup. 

“Each year we look to add to our roster of judges with fresh faces and opinions. This year we are especially seeking brands and retailers from outside of the UK and non-affiliate-first Performance Media specialists.”

Matthew Wood, Founder of PerformanceIN and the International Performance Marketing Awards

Unlike other award programmes, IPMA judges do not need to have heaps of experience. Those working in the trenches with relevant experience have as much right to judge as those with 20 years in the industry. Each category is assigned a minimum of six judges, therefore the awards team would love to hear from as many brands and publishers as possible to share their expertise and help determine the winners.

Nominate Your Hero

As per previous years, the PerformanceIN team are now accepting applications and nominations for the judging panel.

Judges must be determined to champion the latest success stories, be an advocate of upcoming talent, and look to reward the most exceptional, best in class work and strategy in the industry.

The two-stage judging process means that judges will be scoring campaigns on the planning, innovation, creativity, execution and results they achieved using a comprehensive criteria, followed by an online judging day with your peers. 

Judging any awards is an incredibly valuable experience and you’re thoroughly encouraged you to apply. Unfortunately, applications won’t be accepted from networks and SaaS platforms.

The deadline for submissions is July 22 and prospective judges must be able to review submissions between 9-16 August as well as attending the online judging day on September 1.
