Following the launch of the Influencer Marketing Awards, we are growing our panel of impartial judges, who are passionate about celebrating exceptional work within the influencer marketing industry.
We’re on the lookout for the industry’s brightest, most respected, and insightful individuals. Not only will you be rewarding creativity and collaboration, but becoming a judge is a great way to stay in touch with innovation throughout our industry and disciplines.
We’re looking for a panel that is representative of our industry. Our aim is to give as many diverse voices, i.e. gender, ethnicity, LGBTQ+, different ages/seniority, educational background, people with disabilities, a chance to determine the results of this industry-leading event.
Scott Guthrie, one of our 2020 judges said: “Influencer marketing is growing at break-neck speed. It’s twenty times the size it was just five years ago. Influencer marketing is professionalising at speed too. IMA judges get to see the best-of-breed campaigns each year. And, alongside their industry peers, determine what’s worked well and why.”
The judging process
Judges will be assigned three to five categories each, depending on their area of knowledge and expertise.
With our two-stage judging process, you’ll be scoring campaigns – under NDA – on the planning, innovation, creativity, execution, and results they achieved using our comprehensive criteria, followed by an online judging day with your peers. Prospective judges must be able to attend the online judging day on 2nd June 2021.
If this sounds like an opportunity you, or someone you know, would be interested in, you can apply via the IMA website. We encourage you not only to nominate yourself as a judge but to nominate your peers and colleagues who you feel would be a good fit in our inclusive panel.
The deadline to get your form submitted is 11th March 2021.
