  • To show you are producing outstanding content.
  • To prove your skills to your company, clients and peers.
  • To have your work evaluated by our esteemed judging council.
  • To stand out from your competitors.
  • To gain fantastic PR value.

Is there a discount for multiple entries?

No

Do I need to provide results? How do I do this?

Yes. Entries without quantifiable results will be penalised.
Be as specific as possible: quote a client on their satisfaction with the results, include measurable impact on sales (if applicable), include information on the brand’s commitment to the programme in future years, or recap any statistics you gathered that measured the promotional marketing success. The more information you provide, the better. Provide info using the Submission Form to guide you.

When does the judging take place?

The judging council will meet in March 2019 for final adjudication.

When are the winners announced?

The Marketing Achievement Awards will be hosting a glittering awards ceremony to announce the winners at Sun City on the 27th June 2019

How can I be sure about the integrity of these awards?

The judging process for the awards is separate from the organisers.  It’s chaired by an independent chairman and made up of judges from within the industry.  Final results are to be ratified by the Marketing Association of South Africa and audited independently.

If multiple companies worked on a project, can they all enter the same work?

No. Companies must agree in advance who will submit the entry and must agree on how the credits will be completed. If an entry is received from more than one company, only the first entry will be accepted. No refunds will be given on duplicate entries.

How do I choose an entry category for my work?

It is the responsibility of the entrant to submit their entry into the correct category and the Marketing Achievement Awards will not be held responsible for entries submitted incorrectly. If you need assistance, please send an email to info@marketingawards.co.za
