Campaign of the Year

The award for Campaign of the Year will recognise a marketing, PR and/or advertising campaign that is world-class, successful and meets the commissioning 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. Campaigns may span multiple channels, and examples of the campaign creative will form a key part of the supporting evidence requirement.

The award is open to campaigns of any budget. The campaign can be a one-off activity, part of a longer-term strategy, a product launch, brand awareness campaign or any other activity that has set out to achieve specific measurable objectives. Companies may enter directly, alternatively marketing or PR agencies may enter a campaign on behalf of a client. Note that any agency applications must pay specific attention to the success measures listed above and be able to demonstrate these clearly.
