Marketing Excellence Awards Singapore 2022: Finalists unveiled

share on

 

Despite the challenges of the past few years, this year’s Marketing Excellence Awards demonstrated a high level of excellence as marketers successfully rose to the occasion in producing creative, innovative and effective work and campaigns.

For more than a decade, the Marketing Excellence Awards has been Singapore’s go-to awards platform for benchmarking across the marketing communications spectrum. This year, there are 42 categories designed to recognise and reward Singapore’s outstanding marketing campaigns and talent. Gold, silver and bronze trophies are up for grabs, with the winning contender across all categories being granted the coveted “Marketer of the Year” title.

The awards were judged by an independent panel of 30 client-side marketers. Jury member, Juliana Saputera, head of marketing, Ferrero Asia Pacific said, “It goes without saying that the past year has been really tough. But I’ve seen that creativity has continued to thrive even under times of adversity and tight restrictions. There has been a lot of innovative work taking place across the categories, and it’s great to be able to recognise those who are making a real impact through the awards.”

Echoing similar sentiments, Christine Ng, chief digital officer active cosmetic division, Loreal said the past two years of pandemic was definitely the fuel for inspiration of many creative and innovative entries. Ng shared that entries with very low budgets have also proved that  big budgets are not the only way to build a brand. "Smaller budgets can also work well if done shrewdly, reaching the right consumer at the right time with the right touchpoints," she shared. 

Joyce Yao, director of marketing communications, York Hotel Singapore said, “It has been a pleasure to review all the great masterpieces for the Marketing Excellence Awards 2022. Each campaign not only nurtures an idea, but underwent a great deal of research and testing to ensure the campaign achieves success, brand vision and customer loyalty.”

Meanwhile, Amanda Hao, head of marketing, Edrington SEAPAC mentioned that this year saw an excellent number of entries and some fantastic campaign executions and results. "We wish all the brands and agencies the best, and cannot wait for the reveal of the final award winner,” said Hao.
