The Marketing Society Awards set the standard for marketing excellence in the UK, and have been widely recognised as the country's leading marketing awards since 1985.

The Marketing Society are on a mission to help raise marketing's positive impact on business and in the world. Brilliant marketing drives growth and changes the world, and The Awards provide best-practice evidence to take into the boardroom and empower our industry.

The Awards are open to organisations worldwide, and there are no restrictions on when your campaign took place. The categories have also been expanded this year to ensure there are more opportunities for marketing excellence to be recognised. Here are three more reasons why this is the year for you to enter:

1.    Peer recognition. The Awards are judged by a panel of elite marketers, all working at the leading edge of marketing. They represent a cross-section of the most successful brands in the UK, led by our President Syl Saller, former Global CMO, Diageo.

2.    Ammunition. Your award entries contribute to the vital wall of evidence of marketing's effectiveness at building brands and driving growth

3.    Kudos. They will help you reward your team, retain top talent and recognise achievements and hard work in a tough environment.

If you've never entered the Marketing Society Awards or haven't done so for some time - this is the year to make you and your team's hard work count.

Now is the time to come together and prove that excellent marketing makes the difference. The deadline closes on Friday 4 March, so enter now. Enter The Awards.
