2023 International Content Marketing Awards

LAST CHANCE: The 2023 entry deadline closes tomorrow!

Hi ,

We are now just over 24 hours away from the 2023 entry deadline closing. It’s already shaping up to be another amazing year of celebrating the content marketing industry, with entries being sent in from across the world. Please get in touch if you’re still looking to enter and require assistance.


Once the deadline has closed and our award portal is locked, we’ll begin the next phase. Our experts from across the world will spend the next fortnight judging the incredible work and helping to form the shortlist for the International Content Marketing Awards.

When the shortlist has been announced, we then pass the shortlist over to our second round judges, all of which are content experts from across the world. They’ll spend around 10 days working through each of the entries in their category before coming together as a panel early in November to select the Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners of this year’s awards.


After discussing with members of the community, 2023’s award ceremony will be held virtually. We know how well-loved the in-person event used to be and we’re working hard to bring this event back for 2024.

The decision to hold this year’s ceremony virtually wasn't one we made easily. Event costs have risen significantly since our last in-person award ceremony in 2019, as well as tighter budgets and work patterns from those in our community.

Our plan is to be back in-person and celebrating content marketing excellence next year. One of the ways we’re looking to achieve this is by partnering with a company that can help us and the wider content industry as we return to our usual spectacular event!

Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about sponsoring the International Content Marketing Awards.


Entry deadline: Friday, 8th September 2023
Deadline Extended to Friday, 15th September 2023
Shortlist Announcement: Week Commencing 23rd October 2023
Awards ceremony: November 2023 (Date TBC)

🏆 Call for Judges - LAST CALL

Our award process has two judging rounds. The first round is where multiple individuals anonymously score a category to create a shortlist. The shortlist is then revealed for the second round, which includes 60+ industry experts and judges from previous years who meet to debate the shortlist and select our gold, silver, and bronze winners.

Would you like to get involved judging this year’s awards? Please get in touch if you’d like to add your name, or would like to nominate a friend/colleague.

We invite judges from right across the content marketing community, and whether you’re entering the awards or not. We make sure that judges which are also entering the awards are kept away from any of their own categories.

Here's what we need:
- Name and email address
- Short reason why you'd like to judge this year’s awards

*Thanks for considering! As a quick note - judges spent around four hours per category on average last year, which can be split at a time that suits you over a fortnight of the judging process.
