The list of nominations for the IPM Awards 2013 is now live – click here to see it!
We had more than 360 campaigns submitted for consideration across 32 different categories. These have now been examined by our first round judging panels, made up of 100 of the great and the good from the promotional marketing industry, and they’ve decided which of them are good enough to be awarded the highly coveted IPM Awards 2013 Bronze, Silver or Gold trophies.
If you want to find out which campaigns win which trophies – and be at the biggest networking event of the promotional marketing industry’s calendar – then you really need to attend the IPM Awards 2013 Gala Dinner, which is being held at the Park Lane Hilton on Tuesday 18th June 2013.
This year, media partner for the IPM Awards 2013 is The Times and Sunday Times newspaper, while the headline partners are The Lettershop Group and NDL.
The nominations list now goes to our final judging panel, who will decide on who collects the two ultimate trophies – the IPM Awards 2013 Grand Prix, which goes to the single campaign which the judges feel represents the best of the best in promotional marketing, and the IPM Agency of the Year, which goes to the agency which demonstrates the greatest strength in depth by winning awards for different campaigns.
The final award for the IPM Awards 2013 is The Times Consumer Award, which is decided by a panel of randomly selected consumers representative of the UK population. The Consumer Award panel is being chaired by Suzi Watford, marketing director of The Times and The Sunday Times.
If you book a table for the Gala Dinner by Friday May 3rd 2013, then you can save over £350 off the normal price for a table of 10. You can find all the table booking details here.
Our theme for 2013 is 'Made in the UK', and our aim is to celebrate the UK's world-leading position as a creative hub and marketing powerhouse.
The IPM Awards are also the springboard for entry into two international award programmes, the European IMC Awards and the worldwide MAAW Globe Awards. Only entries that win a trophy at the IPM Awards are eligible to be put forward for either these prestigious recognition schemes.
So that means winning a trophy at the IPM Awards 2013 could be the first step to a campaign being selected for European or even worldwide recognition, helping us reinforce our argument that the best promotional marketing campaigns in the world really are Made in the UK!
