    JUDGING CRITERIA

    Judges will be looking for companies or campaigns that can clearly demonstrate success over the past 12 months. Judges are seeking companies or campaigns that have seized challenges and created opportunities and will evaluate entries based on the following criteria: Innovation, Creativity, Consumer Value and Results. 

    Judges will require evidence to substantiate all entries. This can include details of financial performance, specific KPIs, creative evidence in the form of a sizzle reel, campaign images, or links to the final project or related sites. The judges will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry.

    THE JUDGING PROCESS

    Judges will score each entry prompt and consider any supporting materials submitted. These scores will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All scores will then be averaged and the highest scoring entries will appear on the shortlist. Note: At least three judges will score each entry.

    CONFIDENTIALITY

    All material will remain confidential to the judges. Only the 'Credits' section of an entry will be made public via the shortlist. If you win a particular category, our team may summarize the entry for posts on Digiday.com. Specific results are never shared.
