JUDGING

THE JURY

The AME Awards International Grand Jury consists of top interactive and multidisciplinary marketers, media planners, strategy directors, social media experts, and creatives who donate their time and expertise to the competition

SCORING

Judges are asked to evaluate each entry based on 4 specific criteria, each weighted according to importance:

RESULTS & EFFECTIVENESS 30%

IDEA 25%

EXECUTION 25%

CHALLENGE/STRATEGY/OBJECTIVES 20%

THE JUDGING PROCESS

Entries are judged in three rounds against high standards of creative execution and marketing effectiveness. Creative executions, details from the written marketing brief, and the overall presentation of the work are taken into consideration; outside sources for evidence of results is of key importance.

ROUND 1: PRELIMINARY ROUND

Judges review entries from within their own regions and score each based on its own merit, not in comparison to other entries. This round determines the Shortlist of Finalists.

ROUND 2: MEDAL ROUND

All Shortlist entries are scored again, also by region and based on their own merits. This round determines the Bronze, Silver, and Gold winners for each region. The AME Green Award is presented to the highest scoring Gold-winning campaign that represents the ideals of resource conservation, ecology and/or the reduction of negative impacts to the environment.

ROUND 3: THE PLATINUM & GRAND AWARD

All Gold-winning work is scored by all judges in all regions. A Platinum Award is presented to the top-scoring entry in each region, regardless of category. An entry must win a Gold medal to qualify for a Platinum Award. If there are no Gold-winning entries in a region, no Platinum Award will be awarded for that region. The Grand AME Award will be presented to the campaign that earns the highest score across all regions in this round.

THE REGIONS ARE

NORTH AMERICA

LATIN AMERICA

EUROPE

ASIA PACIFIC

MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA.

If there are not enough entries received from a region to merit a full judging session, those entries will be added to the judging session for the nearest region.
