Who Can Enter?
The awards are eligible to all advertisers, publishers, media owners, agencies, networks, startups, technology providers or individuals from across the globe in the performance marketing ecosystem.
UK based entries will once again be eligible for submission but must adhere to the activity period.
Likewise, any entries which have been submitted in previous years may not be submitted in 2022, unless you can clearly showcase considerable developments in the execution and results have occurred since the last time it was received. It cannot be a simple resubmission of the previous entry.
If you are submitting entries for multiple categories, please ensure each entry is adapted to fit the requirements by using the category-specific templates provided in the Entry Kit.

How Do I Submit My Entry?
When entries open, all entries will need to be completed using our online platform. All applicants will be required to create an account on our online platform. This will then give you access to all of your entries and show you how you’re progressing.
We also encourage our entrants to use their creative flair and provide supporting evidence. This isn’t mandatory and should only be used to support the information being held in the main online entry. There will also be a section to easily link URLs and videos.
Can I Include a Video in My Entry?
Yes. However all text sections will still need to be completed; please do not use the video as a replacement for text in the entry boxes as all of these sections have marks to be gained. The video should only be used to support what you’re already saying in your entry.
Please upload your video to a hosting site such as YouTube or Vimeo and then paste the URL into the box indicated when completing your entry.
Don’t forget to include any passwords in your entry if they’re required!
Can I Access the Platform Before Submitting?
Yes. Our online platform will open in May. You will be able to head there, set up an account and take a look around. You’ll be able to see the submission form, which mirrors the criteria document, and have a look at the entry process before starting your entries.
What’s My Password?
When you create your account on the platform you will receive a unique PIN. This will be emailed to you once you have completed the registration form with your email address. You will also receive a personal link to your portal – keep this safe!
Is There a Word Count?
Typically it’s 350 words per criteria section, unless stated otherwise on the criteria document and platform.
Can I Withdraw an Entry?
Written requests for entry withdrawal is permissible before the shortlist is announced; however, we will not provide refunds after the Final Deadline of 11.07.22.
Can I Enter the Same Campaign into Both UK and Gobal Awards?
Submissions for the UK awards are eligible for entry in the Europe categories for the GPMAs. If your work is based towards the UK market, entering the Global Performance Marketing Awards allows you to compete with the best campaigns from across the continent.
The campaign activity must have taken place between 11.02.21 and 11.07.22.
How Do the Global Awards Differ to the UK Awards?
The PMA’s are exclusively for campaigns based towards the UK market. In comparison, the Global Awards recognise the exceptional results from across the globe.
How Do the Global Awards Differ to the Partnership Awards?
The GPMA’s recognise the exceptional campaigns and companies from across the globe. The Partnership Awards focus purely on the North American market.
How Are the Awards Judged?
An independent panel of experts will individually score submissions according to a set criteria. Once all scores are collated, a remote judging day will take place to decide the overall winners.
Can I Apply / Nominate Someone to Be a Judge?
Yes, we are accepting nominations and applications to join our judging panel. We want to create a panel that is fully representative of our industry. Unlike other award programmes, we don’t request heaps of experience. We believe that those working in the trenches with relevant experience have as much right to judge as those with 30 years.
Stay tuned, and make sure you are following us on social media, for all the latest on judging nominations and applications.
What Sponsorship Opportunities Are Available?
If you are interested in sponsorship for the 2022 event, we have Welcome Drinks, Photobooth and Category sponsorship available.
