The Chartered Institute of Marketers (CIM) Malawi group is calling on companies and individuals to submit their entries for this year’s Marketing Excellence Awards Friday, November 20 to be considered for this year’s awards gala scheduled to take place on November 27 at Mount Soche in Blantyre.
This year’s categories include Marketer of the Year, Social Marketing Initiative of the year, Life Changing Brand of the Year, and Marketing Campaign of the Year, among others.
CIM Malawi head of publicity Ella Kabambe said the group has this year raised the bar of the highly sought after marketing accolades by instituting a new judge’s panel to bring in new ideas and new assessment guidelines.
“In the year, we have seen growth in marketing execution and we anticipate strong competition among patrons as most will strive to put up the best,” she said.
Kabambe encouraged marketing professionals in the country to attend the prestigious event where she said patrons will share their marketing successes stories to inspire each other to constantly improve to keep abreast with changing times.
Participants will be required to pay a small fee to be allowed entry.
The idea of CIM Marketing Excellence Awards was developed to recognise the positive values that effective marketing has on an organisation.
The awards further aim at recognising the creativity and originality delivered by marketers and to celebrate the results being generated through successful marketing campaigns.
To be nominated, companies and individuals are required to submit entries specifying the category they want to contest in and CIM puts no limitation on the number of entries.
