Judging Process

To create an awards program that benchmarks the best work, the Strategy Awards jury is comprised of leading agency and brand marketing experts from across the industry who know Canada's strategic planning landscape.


The Strategy Awards jury will assess all entries based on criteria relevant to each category as outlined in the guidelines. They will assign scores out of 10 to each, and based on cumulative scores, the top scoring entries will be assessed for Strategy Gold, Silver, or Bronze status. Categories may yield multiple Golds, Silvers, Bronzes, or none at all. However, a single campaign can be awarded a maximum of 3 Golds. The jury will also select the Grand Prix.

Bronze - Your strategy nailed planning objectives and was key to the brand's current marketing program direction.
