Launched in 1985, they have established their reputation as the leading marketing awards in the UK over the last three decades.
They are judged by an elite panel of top marketing practitioners drawn from blue-chip marketing organisations.
Each year these awards add to the industry’s knowledge on marketing excellence. All shortlisted and winning cases are available for members on our Clubhouse. Selected winners will be showcased in Society events throughout the year.
