The Marketing Achievement Awards signify the highest recognition for South African marketing endeavours, involving a comprehensive peer review of submitted initiatives.

This year’s entries have been notably impressive, considering the challenges businesses faced post-pandemic and amid prevailing economic headwinds.  MAA council members and judges have attested to the thoroughness and robustness of this year’s adjudication process with each written submission undergoing careful evaluation against specified criteria and with judges engaging in spirited discussions to determine the merits of top-scoring entries.

Category Awards Qualifiers

Our esteemed judges have diligently assessed this year’s submissions. Below is a list of entrants who excelled, achieving an average score of 70% or more on their collective scorecards.

Being a Qualifier is significant and reserved for endeavours that truly stand out.  We think that entrants should take pride in knowing that their work ranks among the top percentile of entries in their category!

Unlike competitions that unveil their finalists in advance, the Marketing Achievement Awards keeps the suspense alive until the ceremony night. Finalist status for Category Awards is conferred only at the event, adding an extra layer of prestige to those who excel.  Congratulations to all the qualifiers!

Missed the cut? It might have been by a narrow margin, so please consider entering next season with updated results or new work. Your dedication deserves recognition.

Leadership Awards

The process for establishing the MAA Leadership Awards continues into 2024. Adjudication committees are currently conducting online interviews with nominees and their colleagues to gain a deep understanding of these marketers and their impactful work.

We look forward to announcing the finalists of the leadership awards and event ticketing details mid-February and celebrating with all South African Marketers on the 26th of March 2024, where the ultimate recognitions will be bestowed.

The Marketing Achievement Awards extend sincere gratitude to its partners for their unwavering support of this vital industry initiative and thank all our wonderful entrants and judges for being part of this season’s awards.

Wishing you all the best for the upcoming holidays!
