This award is for an established brand or retailer who has been brave enough to re-invent the wheel and has seen positive results for doing so. The judges are looking for an innovative or adaptive strategy that is answering the needs and wants of today’s consumers. Perhaps you delivered personalisation at scale across multiple channels, launched new in-store experiences, experimented with new marketing strategies or adopted a new technology, such as AI or Voice, that completely changed the customer experience.


For this award, we are looking to recognise the BEST advertising or marketing campaign of 2018. To be eligible, this must be a campaign that took place within the last 12 months. It can be a marketing, advertising or branding campaign, delivered by an agency, brand, retailer, content or influencer marketing platform or any other relevant organisation. Judges will be looking for the results of the campaign against the objectives, so applications should consider this.

Want to be considered the best among the rest? This category is exclusively for solution providers who have a technology or platform they feel is worthy of this title. Do you feel your solution will change the future landscape of retail, marketing and commerce? Or compliment the customer journey? Is it clear that retailers should all be choosing you? There is no specification of what makes the best solution but judges are looking for uniqueness, innovation and result-driven success.

You are a solution provider, brand, retail, influencer, media that have co-branded, developed or collaborated to expose your products or service to a new audience or new markets. For partnerships to work you demonstrate a win-win for all players, inspire and add value to customers.

We are on the look-out for this year’s most disruptive consumer brand! This award is to recognise excellence from brands thriving in the age of the digital. Perhaps you’ve been part of a new brand-launch, led a marketing team which has transformed brand perspective or developed a new disruptive direct-to-consumer business model. The judges will be looking for a brand which is relevant and relatable to today’s consumer and experiencing fast growth in their product category.
