For comprehensive information on the 2016 judges, and the judging process for the Performance Marketing Awards, please visit our dedicated judging process page

Our judges are selected from an international panel of digital marketing experts. Judges do not assess all categories. If any conflict of interest arises, they are excluded from judging the categories affected. All judges sign an non-disclosure agreement prior to applications being released, which prohibits them from sharing any of the material they view.

The awards are based on where the activity or campaign takes place and not where you are based. I.E. if you have campaigns that are ran in any of the European Countries (as defined here) then you are eligible to submit entries to the European Performance Marketing Awards. For clarity, that's any of the channel, vertical or innovation categories.

Yes, you can enter into as many categories as you deem relevant. If you wish to enter the same entry into multiple categories we encourage you to tailor it to the entry criteria.

Nominations can be made by any publisher that works with you in a specific country. I.E. if you are based in the USA but run campaigns or have technology in Germany, you can encourage your publishers in Germany to nominate you.

If you are based in Germany but run campaigns in the USA, you can ask any publisher that works with you around the world to nominate for you in the Rest of The World category.

After a shortlist has been decided through the above process, publishers are invited to vote on their eventual winner.

The Performance Marketing Awards have played a key role in developing our industry and increasing its visibility, not only within the UK market but also across Europe. The event offers a great opportunity to reward the highly creative and strategic work that we as an industry know exists within, but also raises awareness to those outside of the marketplace of the rich and diverse opportunities that performance marketing has to offer.”
