Each year the AMI Awards honour campaigns from a diverse range of companies with varying resources, innovative strategic approaches and campaigns targeted to a wide range of local and overseas audiences.
The premier event of the Marketing calendar, this year the Awards Ceremony and AMI Marketing Excellence Gala will be held at Pullman Melbourne in the Park on 16 October 2019.
“Open to everyone, the AMI Marketing Excellence Gala is being held in Melbourne with around 500 industry professionals expected to attend. It’s the night of night for marketing professionals to recognise and celebrate marketing excellence across Australia, catchup with peers, and network. If you’re a marketing professional, academic or industry partner you don’t want to miss out, so recommend you get in early and secure a spot.” Lynda Cavalera, AMI Chairperson.
With 18 categories, 7 special awards, and over 200 entries and 120 judges, the merits of each submission are assessed by considering the different B2B & B2C metrics and success factors as well as the linkage between strategy, execution and outcomes achieved. Winning entries are then selected after undergoing a transparent and rigorous judging process.
Past winners have included Tourism Australia, who won the coveted Marketing Team of the Year award; Braveda, Agency of the Year; and Mater Education, Marketing Campaign of the Year. Other award winners included Lisa Ronson, who took home the CMO of the Year award; Nicola Hepenstall was awarded Certified Practising Marketer (CPM) of the Year, while Chrissie Maus (Chapel Street Precinct Association) was recognised as Feature Leader of the Year. Mark Ritson was presented the Sir Charles McGrath award in recognition of his experience and contribution to the marketing industry over the past 22 years.
