About the Awards

The Marketing Society Awards set the standard for marketing excellence and have been widely recognised as the leading marketing awards since they launched in 1985.

They are judged by elite marketers who all work at the leading edge of marketing. Together they represent a cross-section of some of the most successful brands around the world. The judging panel for 2021 is led by Marketing Society President Syl Saller CBE, former Global CMO of Diageo.

We are looking for the work of brands and agencies who, despite the challenges of the pandemic, have still helped their businesses to survive and thrive. We look not only for creativity and effectiveness, which is the essence of excellence, but also for marketing stories that can inspire us all in this 'new normal'.

Submissions are open to all organisations, brands and agencies worldwide.

Entries are submitted and paid for online and may be done so by the owner of the brand or company (or their marketing/ad agency). Moreover, you don’t have to reside in the UK or be a Marketing Society member to enter these awards.
