After plenty of extensive debate and discussion, we are delighted to announce the shortlist for the Global Performance Marketing Awards 2022.

This year, shortlisted entrants demonstrated true innovation, razor-sharp focus on aligning efforts to both enterprise and SMEs needs, and the increasing forging of unique and unexpected partnerships.

Judges were once again thrilled to see the focus being placed on ensuring success in the many moving parts of a campaign, once again reiterating the importance of the human touch.

Who is in the running for an award?

This years’ honourees include familiar faces such as Awin, Rakuten Advertising, Partnerize and, as well as some you may not be as familiar with, but will definitely be hearing from more, including Lodestar Marketing, Making Science, and, after their innovative entries secured them a spot on the shortlist.

Check out the full shortlist – who do you think will secure a space in the GPMA hall of fame?

“Judging the 2022 GPMAs has been such a fantastic opportunity – it’s so encouraging to witness all of the excellent work that is being done in the affiliate and partnerships space and witness so many brilliant submissions first hand…”

Elisa Charbonnel, Director, Paid Media, The Walt Disney Company

One to Watch award and Industry Voting

The One to Watch award selection process is currently underway, with the dragons quizzing the candidates. Their decisions will be combined with the industry votes, which you can cast now, to determine this years’ winner.

As an industry member, you can also cast your vote for the Best Affiliate Network. Voting for these two categories is live from today for one week until next Wednesday, 28th September at 5pm GMT. Please note there is a one vote per company rule, and personal email addresses are not accepted.

“With nine new categories this year, the GPMAs cover the breadth of performance marketing from content commerce and programmatic ad-buying to loyalty partnerships. We also split the Best Agency award, ensuring agencies focusing on Performance Media are differentiated from their Partner Marketing counterparts. Once again, the judging day facilitated healthy debate, and we look forward to announcing the winners the night before PI LIVE London on October 17 ”
