They can work across many content marketing functions, in an agency or at a brand that demonstrates an outstanding contribution to content marketing. Individuals may come from areas including account management, editorial, design, planning/ research, data and insight, content delivery and campaign management.

The Content Marketing Association award the very best content marketing campaigns, strategies, teams and individuals working in the content industry.

This pack has been carefully put together based on frequently asked questions from previous award entrants and valued members of our community, and it'll help guide you through the entry process. It includes all the information you need on each category, along with case studies from previous winners for inspiration.

🏆 Call for Judges

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 - last year, judges spent around four hours per category on average, which can be split at a time that suits you over a fortnight of the judging process.
