There are awards, and there are Awards. The Marketing Week Masters awards fall into the latter category – one of these in your trophy cabinet says a great deal about your business, your work and your reputation. Oystercatchers are sponsors of the much-coveted Agency of the Year category, and the deadline has just been extended  to 3rd May, so you still have the opportunity to enter. It’s free to enter for Agency of the Year, but to qualify you’ll need to be entered in at least three other categories.

Why should you enter?

It’s the UK’s biggest celebration of marketing excellence
With more than 30 categories, the awards are the biggest celebration of marketing effectiveness, innovation and creativity in the UK. From the challenge of digital transformation, to effective use of new and old media channels in all major industry sectors; and from boardroom demands to extract more from less, to the challenge of building a winning marketing team, the Marketing Week Masters covers all of this in one set of awards.

Have your work seen by the biggest names in UK marketing
The Marketing Week Masters Awards are exclusively judged by a panel of senior marketing leaders. This year, the expert panel of judges includes Meghan Farren, CMO of KFC UK & Ireland; easyJet CMO Lis Blair; Ali Jones, customer director at The Co-operative Group; Rachael Pettitt, Uber’s head of marketing for the UK, Northern and Eastern Europe; and David Wheldon, CMO at RBS,  They are joined by E.ON’s director of marketing and communications Belinda Moore; Santander CMO Keith Moor; Direct Line Group marketing director Mark Evans; and the Guardian’s director of marketing Sonia Sudhakar, among many others.

Get your work profiled on Marketing Week
The winners will also be profiled on Marketing Week, with a dedicated area setup on the Marketing Week website detailing the secrets behind the winners’ success. Stories will again be shared on their social media channels and via their email newsletters, which go out to hundreds of thousands across the marketing industry.

Last year saw Asos, Nationwide and Bodyform win big, with Asos taking home the Brand of the Year Award, Bodyform winning the Grand Prix and Nationwide CMO Sara Bennison crowned Visionary Marketer of the Year.
