Areas of Marketing Expertise

Please select those areas of marketing that you focus on in your day-to-day world and consider yourself particularly suited to judge. 

These selections will help match those judges with specific job focuses to categories that require judges to have a particular expertise.  You do not need to select an area of expertise to be considered for the Effie jury.

Marketing Expertise - Select those areas where you have considerable expertise & work within that area on a day-to-day basis. Do not select all.

Collegiate Effies

Please note if you are interested in volunteering as a Collegiate Effie judge, or if you would be willing to help involve some of your more junior team members in Collegiate Effie judging.  

Many senior marketing leaders participate as collegiate judges to give back to the future members of the industry.  Additionally, the Collegiate Effies are also a great way for team members who do not qualify as Round One judges to experience the judging process.  Students receive written feedback from the judges who score their work - offering a great opportunity for them to learn about creating effective marketing campaigns.

Collegiate Effie judging can be done online for your convenience.  We appreciate your participation.

Please Note: The needs of the Effie Selection Committee change on a rolling basis as we strive to create well-rounded juries that represent both client side and agency expertise across each discipline. For this reason, we can not guarantee the acceptance of all judging applicants.
