Richard Pink, IPM Head of Awards, commented: “We’re delighted to release the full list of judges for this year’s Awards. Those selected will soon undergo the most important aspect of the Awards – choosing the winners! Our selected judges bring with them a wealth of industry knowledge and a keen eye for spotting great campaigns. I look forward to meeting with everyone this year and finding out their thoughts on our entries.”

IPM Managing Director, Paul Cope, added: “The Awards is our biggest event of the year, so we are thrilled that so many talented people applied to be a judge. Thank you everyone! The standard of entries has been fantastic so far, but there’s still time to submit your campaigns – the closing date is 6pm on 15th March.”

The judging process will involve two main parts, online and in face-to-face groups. The online judging will see all judges score the entries against the supplied criteria and will take place throughout April. At the end of the month, the judging groups, each led by a pre-selected Chair and overseen by our head of awards, Richard Pink, will meet in a single location either in Manchester or in London to determine the final allocation of trophies.

The shortlisted campaigns will be announced on 9th May and the trophies handed out by a very special guest at the gala event on Thursday 4th July.
