The Majors, run in association with The Drum, celebrates the best in creative, digital and tech. The prestigious panel of over 25 judges included senior marketers such as Nishma Robb, Marketing Director at Google, Kat Hahn, Creative Strategist at Facebook & Instagram, and Scott Allen, CMO at Microsoft.
The judging process valued innovative and results-driven work above all else, stating; “We are looking for a campaign that shows creative thought and made an impact across multiple social platforms. It could be one that created lots of buzz online or a well thought out strategy that performed well with engagement. Candidates will need to demonstrate innovations, creativity, originality and examples of high engagement.”
