Excellence by design: Marketing Design Awards 2009

LONDON - Marketing is relaunching its Marketing Design Awards to celebrate the extraordinary design talents at work in the UK.

Rewards will go to those design and brand marketing agencies, consultancies, and practices who aid the efforts of challenged marketers seeking to keep their brands leading their sectors and evolving to match consumer expectations and demand.

At Marketing, we consider design a crucial tool, which assists marketers and brands fight for share of voice, share of market, and, ultimately, a rightful share of profits.

We want entries from companies that have eased the plight of marketers through outstanding design projects with a marketing purpose: creative projects that improve brand or business performance in financial or non-financial ways.

The awards are divided into 20 categories, based on product sector and design use. A prestigious Marketing Design Award will be presented to the best overall entry.

For full information, visit the website (www.marketingdesignawards.com) and fill in the online registration form. The site will formally accept entries from June 8, 2009, but you will need to register in advance to obtain your password for future access.  All entries should relate to the period between January 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009 - an eighteen month eligibility period.

The final closing date for entries is Friday July 31, 2009.

These independent awards will be held during a lunchtime ceremony on Wednesday November 4, 2009 at Grosvenor House on Park Lane, London. Lunchtime has been chosen to reduce the necessity for overnight accommodation costs for those travelling long distances.

Winners will appear on the Marketing website and work will be showcased in an online gallery.
