    CIM announce industry judges for the 2020 Marketing Excellence Awards

    • The awards recognise and reward brilliance in the field of marketing, celebrating the finest minds within the profession
    • 2019 winners included EY, Fox Networks Group and Britvic
    • Leading industry figures from brands such as: FT, HSBC, Hello Fresh, Everton Football and the agency sector lead the judging this year

    The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), today announced the judging line-up for the 2020 Marketing Excellence Awards, in advance of the ceremony, which takes place on the 2nd April 2020; for the first time at The Brewery, in the City of London.

    The 41 strong jury will judge entries from the best marketing campaigns over the past twelve months, as well as choosing the winners of individual awards such as ‘Marketer of the Year’. To add to a new location and a new judging panel, six new categories have been announced for the industrial sector, aiming to reward the outstanding marketing by organisations, teams and individuals who are at the cutting edge of their profession.

    Representatives from brands as diverse as Financial Times, HSBC, Hello Fresh and Everton Football Club are joined by agency side representatives from Orange Bus, Good Relations and Rufus Leonard to provide a detailed perspective on the quality of the campaigns. This is a fantastic opportunity for marketers, across a range of industries, to put their best work forward in front of some of the leading lights of the marketing profession.

    “Having the chance to judge these awards that recognise, celebrate and encourage the amazing wealth of marketing talent in the UK is one opportunity not to be missed,” commented Allyson Stewart-Allen, CEO of International Marketing Partners and CIM trustee. “With so much innovation and creativity in this country that builds brand value around the globe, I’m delighted to play my part with CIM to uncover those marketers who are delivering real commercial results,” concluded Stewart-Allen.

    Chris Daly, chief executive of CIM, said: “On the 2nd of April 2020, with over 600 professionals from across the field of marketing attending, we had to get the very best in the field to judge them. Hence why we expanded our judging line-up, seeking a wider pool of expertise to provide the same rigour and dedication as some of the amazing campaigns they’ll be judging. Good luck to everyone who enters.”

    Sam Richardson, Lead CX Consultant & Service Designer at Orange Bus: "I'm looking forward to representing Orange Bus as a judge at this year's CIM Award entries. As a customer experience geek, I'm hoping to find entries that effectively blend human insights and data to craft meaningful projects and campaigns. The capacity for marketing to truly engage and enrich human experiences is immense, and it will be an honour to meet some of the best individuals and teams in the business. I can't wait!" 

    Tickets for the 2020 awards will be released in early 2020.
