Entering the Marketing & Digital Recruitment Awards

Any recruitment firm that has displayed unparalleled excellence within the marketing, advertising, creative and digital sectors should enter these awards.

Marketing agencies should NOT enter these awards unless doing so for a client.


From May, there will be a simple tick-box entry form on this website for you to select which categories you would like to enter yourself into.

Relevant entry forms will then be sent out no sooner than 1st June.


The deadline for submitting completed entry forms and supporting evidence need to be sent back electronically by 31st July 2018.


No, the awards are totally free to enter!

There is no limit on the amount of categories you can enter. However, we do recommend that you don’t enter too many which will result in any categories not being given the attention they deserve.

Feel free to send as much relevant supporting evidence as you wish. This can be anything from testimonials, screenshots, documents etc.

Although it is highly preferable to receive everything electronically, you are welcome to send items that can not be sent electronically, in the post. Please address all items to the following address;

All entries will be going through an initial shortlisting process by our carefully selected judges who will look through the category entries and decide who makes the shortlist.

Once this has been done, and the shortlists have been announced, all judges will be brought together and assigned certain categories to look through more in-depth. There will be a minimum of two judges per category and for any conflicting decisions additional judges will look over the categories and ultimately decide the winner.

Finalists will be announced the week commencing 20th August 2018. Whether or not you have been successful in being shortlisted, you will be notified by email.

All winners will be announced at the Awards Gala at the Hilton London Bankside on 22nd November 2018.
