Judging Process

What is the judging process? 

Once the call for nominations is closed, we then process all the nominations and assign them to the different judging panels. Judges access the assigned nominations through a password protected login.  

All submissions will be kept private and confidential. 

Each nomination is evaluated and receives a score out of 100.    

Who are the judges? 

We are assembling several panels of judges to participate in evaluating the entries for the different categories and sub categories. These judges come from both industry and agencies.  We have invited some of the judges and have also asked for judges to nominate.  Judges cannot enter any of the categories to ensure there is no bias.  

Winners of the Social Media Marketing awards will be invited to become a member of the judging panels in future years.
