BPMA Award Infomation

Arena. “These really are the industry awards that mean something because your fellow industry peers have voted for you or external judges in the marketing community rate you and your work. Winning an award this way is one you and your staff can be proud of.” There are two types of award categories, awards that members are automatically entered into by the BPMA with members voting, and entry-based awards with an external panel of judges voting. “Repeat winners see the value in winning an industry award and enter each year, they put a lot of thought and planning into their entries and the standard of entries grows each year. We would love more members to enter the awards this year,” comments Daniela.

How does the voting system work?

All staff within member companies have access to the online voting system. Members log in and vote on the award categories they are eligible to vote on. Distributor members vote for supplier and service partners, suppliers vote for distributors and service partners, and service. partners vote for both. The voting process is completely transparent with the finalists and winners determined solely by the number of votes and points associated with the votes. Member companies cannot vote for their own entries in any of the awards.

BPMA Supplier and Distributor of the Year Awards

Members are automatically entered into this award based on the annual turnover details they have supplied to the BPMA. It is the member’s responsibility to ensure they are entered into the correct turnover category. When voting begins, members log in and place their votes for each turnover category selecting their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice. Each member of staff within a member company can vote once.

Campaigns could include online advertising, viral marketing, email marketing, and integrated on and offline campaigns. Entrants should demonstrate the effectiveness of the campaign in generating business directly or indirectly. Judges will be looking for ROI or tangible business benefit.
