Judging everything: TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards announces its gang of gatekeepers

There’s just ten days left to get your entries in for the 21st TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards, and the elite team of senior marketers, chief executives and all-round business juggernauts who will be casting their eyes over the entries and deciding who gets to walk home with a Big M has been announced.

Eight new award categories are being judged this year (six of the awards acknowledge specific business sectors: Technology, Financial & Banking, Utilities/Communications, Lifestyle/Travel/Leisure, Automotive and Sponsorship), which brings the total number of categories to 23. And convenor of judges and chief executive at the Marketing Association, Sue McCarty, is “expecting an even greater number of entries and marketing stories being told than previous years”.

Judging for all thirteen industry awards, six judges’ choice awards and four individual awards will take place over two rounds, with a number of round one judges continuing through to round two. This year’s judging panel (see full list below or at the awards website) will be looking for brand and marketing initiatives and/or projects that are clear examples of marketing leadership and success.
