The Marketing Society Excellence Awards sets the standard of marketing excellence in the UK. With 23 categories there is something for everyone.

View the categories and check the entry criteria.

When submitting your entry, ensure you have obtained permission to feature material from external suppliers as necessary.

Case Studies
The Marketing Society will publish winning and shortlisted case studies, to promote marketing excellence.  If your case study contains sensitive information, you should clearly state this and indicate which information should not be published. In addition, some winners will be approached and invited to present at a Best Practice Showcase event in September 2017.

Who can enter
Entries may be submitted by the owner of the brand or company (or their marketing agency). All agencies entering must gain prior approval from a director at the client company and supply that individual’s email address for verification. You do not have to be a member of The Marketing Society to enter the Awards. Your company/agency does not need to reside in the UK.

An entry must take the form of a 2000 word paper (submitted online), which includes your 300 word executive summary. Total max word count: 2300. Please note your word count on the last page of your submission. Creative images should be used to illustrate the paper and aid the judges in their evaluation. You are allowed to upload three supporting images per entry at 300 DPI. Your submission PDF file should not exceed 5MBs. All submissions should be uploaded as PDFs. Paper copies are not required. Images should be uploaded as JPGs.

Each entry should include your 300 word executive summary, which should cover:
