The award for Best Campaign of the Year will recognise a marketing, PR and/or advertising campaign that is world-class, successful and meets the company’s business and strategic objectives.

The judges will consider how the campaign used business insights or intelligence to demonstrate an understanding of long-term business objectives, the means by which the campaign was executed, how the target audience was reached and what the resulting engagement was.

Entries will be judged on supporting information including how effectively the activity was tailored to an identified business need or target audience. In addition, companies need to provide specific performance metrics (if applicable), details of any measurable ROI, evidence of increased brand awareness or change in brand/product perceptions, increased engagement, evidence that the campaign’s success criteria were met or exceeded, and any evidence showing how the campaign added value to the business.

The award is open to both large and small budget campaigns. The campaign can be one-off activity, part of a longer-term strategy, a product launch, a brand awareness campaign or any other activity that has set out to achieve specific objectives. Companies may enter directly, or marketing/PR agencies may enter a campaign on behalf of a client.
