These judges, all with years of experience in their field, evaluated the entries on Strategy, Creativity and Results, all equally weighted. A panel of Senior Judges and our Strategic Committee are available to the judges for questions and to guide them through the online process.
In the Second Round, the Senior Judges and Multi Discipline Judges judge the top entries in the categories and disciplines. The scores from the two rounds are combined to determine Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.
Best of the Best and Top Cause
The top entries from the Second Round are reviewed and the Best of the Best and Top Cause are awarded, making these awards truly representative of the best in Canadian marketing.
