MARKETING-INTERACTIVE is thrilled to announce the shortlist for the inaugural edition in the Philippines of its flagship awards programme, the Marketing Excellence Awards.

The awards aim to reward and celebrate outstanding work from across the marketing communications spectrum, from creative advertising, to PR, to market research, and everything in between.

The finalists are competing across 40 categories open for entry covering diverse marketing disciplines with all entrants competing for gold, silver and bronze trophies. The coveted title of “Marketer of the Year” will go to the best performing entrant across all categories.

The awards were judged by 24 client-side marketers. One of the jury members, Allenie Caccam, head of marketing of Philippines, AirAsia, said: "The entries were nothing short of inspiring as I was able to see the importance of truly understanding the consumer's pain points and addressing them to stay relevant amidst the changing consumer landscape brought by the pandemic."
