Awards and Cogs

IPM Awards table sales and IPM COGS 2019 entries up and running

The Awards

The IPM Awards 2019 exists to recognise and reward brilliantly effective, insightful and creative campaigns in the promotional marketing and brand activation space. Work that really worked. Ideas to be properly proud of. Campaigns that deserve to be celebrated. The very best our industry has to offer.

And this year the standard is higher than ever. Following an extensive, five week judging process, we were thrilled to announce the much-anticipated Awards 2019 shortlist on 9th May, which you can find here.

Tables are now on sale for the gala presentation dinner event at the Hilton, Park Lane, London on Thursday 4th July, compered by our brilliant comedian host – from just £300 + VAT per ticket. It’s our biggest event of the year, and a great opportunity to treat the team, relax with your clients, catch up with a few old colleagues and meet some new friends.

You can buy your tickets by clicking here. Please feel free to get in touch with the Awards team at or on 020 3848 0444 with any questions.

Finally, many thanks to our brilliant sponsors whose support ensures our Awards can grow every year…

The COGS Awards

The IPM is also delighted to announce that the call for entries for The COGS Awards 2019 is now open!

The COGS Awards 2019 exists to recognise and reward all the great work you do that makes stuff happen. All the passion, graft and expertise without which most campaigns would fall at the first hurdle. All the hidden heroes, the engine rooms, the hard yards, the reason clients can sleep at night, the backbone of our industry… our Celebration Of Great Service, in fact.

The IPM listened to your feedback from last year and made a few changes…

  • It’s easier than ever to enter, with fewer questions to answer and criteria to think about
  • There’s less need to provide detailed results – this is about demonstrating great thinking and extraordinary service
  • We’ve added a new category – ‘Team of the Year’ – to recognise the individuals who best embody what The COGS stands for
  • The categories have been aligned to our IPM Communities to acknowledge the importance of The COGS to the IPM – our Communities Of Gold Standards, in fact

The cost to enter is from just £161.50 + VAT per entry including FREE entry into ‘Service Agency of the Year’ for everyone who enters one of the main categories.

You can find all the information you need in the Entry Pack here or on our website here. We’re also hosting a webinar entry masterclass at 1pm on 10th June – you can register to attend here.

Entry is via our awards website here. THE CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES IS 6PM ON FRIDAY 26TH JULY.

Many thanks again to our headline sponsor The Work Perk for all their ongoing support.
