There are now only three weeks left to enter this year’s Northern Marketing Awards (NMAs) - so now is the perfect time to put your entry together. 

The ceremony, which champions and celebrates the region's finest marketing work, will take place at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Club, on Wednesday, November 4th.

The deadline for entering the prestigious NMAs, widely recognised as a symbol of excellence across the North, is Friday, September 4th. You can visit the official website to find out more.

Last year’s ceremony was attended by industry figures from the region’s marketing scene who were treated to a three-course meal and party on the dancefloor afterwards. 

Similar is planned for this year's awards, with appropriate health and safety measures and social distancing in place.

In light of a challenging year for the sector, the organisers have added eight new award categories, meaning that there will be 28 awards up for grabs this year. 

You can read our breakdown of the new categories, such as the one for the Best Crisis Communications Campaign, or view the full list of categories on the NMAs website.

Some members of the judging panel have also shared some advice on submitting a winning entry, so be sure to give that a read in order to boost your chances. 

We’re also compiling case studies of previous winning campaigns to share what sort of work goes into a stellar campaign. 

In this published case study, we see how Liverpool FC’s Trent Alexander-Arnold helped The Anfield Wrap to their first NMAs win. 


There are also sponsorship opportunities available for companies looking to further their presence both at the unforgettable awards ceremony and on the online reports. Click here to download the 2020-2021 sponsorship pack.
