About the Excellence Awards

Our awards set the standard of marketing excellence and have been an institution since 1985 – establishing their reputation as the UK’s leading marketing awards. Each year they are judged by an elite panel of senior marketer, drawn from blue-chip organisations. The awards are a chance to honour and highlight the great work of agencies and brands and to take stock of what is happening in marketing in the UK and around the world.

There are 24 categories, including Heroic Failure, Bravest Brand, Best from Outside the UK and Grand Prix. Submissions are open to all organisations, brands and agencies worldwide. Entries are submitted and paid for online and may be done so by the owner of the brand or company (or their marketing/advertising agency) and you don’t have to be a member of the society to enter or reside in the UK. Submissions are judged against the marketing achievements of all types of business and entrants are asked to provide independent and robust data that supports the claims made in their entries.

About The Marketing Society

The Marketing Society is an exclusive global network of senior marketers.  Since 1959 we have emerged as one of the most influential drivers of marketing in the business community. We challenge our members to think differently and become bolder leaders. We are the place for discerning marketers to learn, develop and share best practice.

We inspire our members through our world-class programme of events, print publications and online Clubhouse, which offers members a rich source of marketing content including opinions, blogs, think pieces, case studies and inspiration. In 2014 we expanded the society into Asia, opening hubs in Hong Kong (2014), Singapore (2015), Dubai (2016), and India and New York (2017). We plan to be in ten key cities by 2020.
