The 2016 Awards for Marketing Excellence nominations are well underway


Nominations Now Open for the Australian Marketing Institute 2016 Awards for Marketing Excellence.

Now in its 34th year, the Australian Marketing Institute is pleased to announce nominations are now open for the Awards for Marketing Excellence, with winners to be announced at a gala event in Sydney in October this year.

The annual Australian Marketing Institute Awards for Marketing Excellence are presented to organisations and marketers who have achieved extraordinary success from innovative and effective marketing practices.

The Awards are continuously evolving every year in response to new developments in marketing theory and practice, and to reflect the growing appreciation of the critical role of marketing as the vital source of value creation for a business. New awards in 2016 include Public Sector Marketing, Export Marketing, and Tourism Marketing to name a few.

Nominations are open to all marketers, including agencies, B2B, and B2C companies. With 10 new categories introduced in 2016, the 28 categories recognise all industries and sectors within Australia.

Nominations close on Friday 3 June.

The Awards for Marketing Excellence are not just for the bigger players like Coke, who won the Marketing Communications (B2C) award in 2015. Just for Pets won Marketing Program of the year in 2015, proving that sometimes it only takes authenticity and goodwill to inspire and add value to an award winning marketing program.

The four prestigious awards, Certified Practising Marketer of the Year, Campaign of the Year, Future Leader of the Year and Sir Charles McGrath award, once again take pride of place in the awards program, along with new category, Marketing Team of the Year. In 2015, CPM Caroline Fitzpatrick, Just For Pets, and Future Leader Gina Lednyak were respective recipients of these awards alongside Sir Charles McGrath Winner, Launa Inman.

The 2015 Awards for Marketing Excellence event in Melbourne was a huge success with the event selling out one-month prior the event. This year Sydney has the pleasure of hosting this magnificent event at the Grand Hyatt on the 19th of October where the winners will be announced and applauded by their peers.
