Best Influencer Marketing Campaign
Campaign Categories: Techniques
This category will award the most effective, innovative and creative campaign that uses one or more social media influencer to achieve its aims. The idea must be PR-led, although we will not exclude entries that involve payment or other incentives to influencers; however, please detail these in your entry. Judges will be looking for details of how the influencer marketing element was incorporated into other parts of the campaign and clear evidence that the goals had been reached or exceeded. This includes outcomes rather than merely social media analytics data. For the benefit of this award, we are defining a social media influencer as an individual or group that has become influential off the back of their own social media platform or platforms. It excludes anyone with pre-existing fame (eg: actors, sportspeople, reality TV stars).

 

Best Integrated Campaign
This award will recognise the creativity, innovation, impact and effectiveness of an integrated campaign. Entry is open to in-house teams, full-service agencies or a combination of agencies from different marketing disciplines. The idea must be PR-led, and the role that PR played in the strategic development and implementation must clearly be stated.

It could be a concert, product launch, conference, roadshow, field marketing activity, sponsorship, stunt or guerrilla opportunity, but it will have incorporated live event skills to bring a brand to life in the eyes of end users. It is important that the nature of the event, strategy, context within an overall PR campaign, planning, logistics, production and subsequent execution and measured effect should be summarised clearly along with details of expert design, production, logistics and support teams employed.

Best Use of Celebrity or Celebrities in a Campaign **New Category**
This category will award the most effective, innovative and creative campaign that uses one or more celebrity/ies to achieve its aims. The idea must be PR-led, although we will not exclude entries that involve payment or other incentives to celebrities; however, please detail these in your entry. Judges will be looking for details of how the celebrity element was incorporated into other parts of the campaign and clear evidence that the goals had been reached or exceeded. This includes outcomes rather than merely social media analytics data. Entrants are advised not to include social media influencers as ‘celebrities’, even those with a high profile; we recommend the Best Influencer Marketing Campaign category for these campaigns. The focus for this category is celebrities who draw their fame from other means (e.g.: actors, sportspeople, musicians, politicians), although they may have gained a sizeable social media following off the back of their pre-existing fame.

Campaign Categories: Techniques
This award will be given for the most effective use of content by a consultancy, in-house team or a combination of both. The objectives, strategy and method deployed should be clearly set out.

This award will be given for the most effective use of creativity within a campaign run by a consultancy, in-house team or a combination of both. Your entry should outline the aim/s of the campaign, the creative ideas injected into it and carried out to make the campaign a success.

Best Use of New Technology
Judges will be looking at innovative and effective ways that new technology, such as VR or AI, has been incorporated into campaigns. Successful entrants will need to demonstrate that the new technology was not merely an ‘add on’ to the campaign but was pivotal to its achievement. Please provide clear data to show the campaign had delivered the desired outcome.

 

Best Use of Planning, Strategy and Evaluation
Campaign Categories: Techniques
