We suggest providing evidence to substantiate your entries including, but not limited to, metrics around KPIs, creative assets, links to your work or other items you feel speak to the quality of your submission. Judges will also consider the structure, presentation, and clarity of each entry.

Each section of the entry will be scored based on the following criteria:

– Creativity

– Innovative thinking

– Consumer value

– Results related to KPIs

Entries should relate to business conducted from January 2017-January 2018.


1. Judges score each question within the entry form based on the outlined criteria.

2. These are then combined to create an overall score for each entry.

3. All judges’ scores are totaled and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlist.

4. Judges meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and then agree on the category winner.


All material will remain confidential to the judges, who are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Winning case studies may be used in post-event materials to promote best practices. Permission will be sought from entrants before publishing.
