ETBrandEquity.com’s Shark Awards aims to recognise these very skills that resulted in excellent marketing work across industries in the past year by professionals who know their jobs like the back of their hands.
The awards rest on the careful and meticulous scrutiny of campaigns by marketing experts who will assess entries on parameters such as Objective & Challenges, Originality & creativity of the idea, Strategy implementation, Message Alignment with TG and Impact. Needless to say, the competition will be tough. After all, being a true marketer is not up everyone’s alley.
The awards are open to media agencies, creative agencies, brands, and mobile & digital marketing agencies & any other organisation related to branding, advertising, and marketing.
