Public voting is now open for the first-ever NDA Heroes Awards.
A new kind of awards programme for the digital marketing sector, the NDA Heroes Awards aim to reward the individuals in our industry who make a difference, not only to their clients but also to their colleagues and the industry as a whole.
The Awards consist of six categories and one overall prize. We’ll be rewarding two people in each of the three sectors we cover; Adtech, Agencies and Publishers. We are looking for a Collaborative Champion from each sector as well as an Agency/ Adtech/Publisher Hero.
Earlier this month, we invited a judging panel of industry experts to whittle down the entries to a nominated shortlist for each category. The panel included Damian Burns, SVP EMEA, Twitch; Dora Michail-Clendinnen, Chief Strategy Officer at The Ozone Project; Paul Gubbins, VP, CTV Strategy at Publica; Nick Baughan, Director of Agencies UK&I, Meta; Lara Izlan, Director of Data Strategy at ITV; Dean Weaving, Director, Brand Media Operations, Deliveroo; Pete Markey, Chief Marketing Officer at Boots UK; Amy Williams, Founder & CEO at Good-Loop; Dan Brain, Co-founder + Content Director, MAD//Fest; Jonathan Mew, CEO at IAB UK; Fiona Spooner, Managing Director, Consumer Revenue at Financial Times; Ben Carter, Chief Marketing Officer at Dunelm (Exec); Nick Flood, Global Ad Product & Revenue Operations Director, Future; and Thiago Correa, Managing Partner, Performics @ Zenith.
A public vote will now decide the winner of each category. Details of each shortlisted nominee are provided to help inform voters’ decisions.
NDA Editor Justin Pearse commented: “I’d like to thank everyone who submitted an entry to the first-ever Heroes Awards. The standard was incredibly high, so big thanks also to our fantastic judging panel for their work in preparing the shortlists. Thanks also to our sponsors ShowHeroes, Fifty and Zelo Digital.
“I’d encourage all NDA readers to cast their votes and help us to spotlight the wonderful people, the everyday heroes, who make up our industry.”
