Whether you're an agency, brand, retailer, vendor, platform, creator, or technology partner, these awards offer a prestigious platform to elevate your brand and celebrate your achievements. But don’t just take it from us, our previous winners have plenty to share with you!

“It’s an amazing feeling (to win) and a huge achievement. It means a lot to us as the GIMAs are at the center of everything we love in the industry and that's exactly why we enter. There’s so much excitement that comes with it because we think it is the absolute benchmark of the industry.” - Rahul Titus, Global Head of Influence at Ogilvy.

Ogilvy was the big winner of the night at last year’s ceremony, taking home an exceptional 10 Gold awards in total. Titus also took home the final award of the night: Game Changer of the Year. If you think it could be your turn to win big, now is the chance for you to enter!

“It was just a fantastic night. We were able to share all of the achievements across the influencer space and come together as an industry to celebrate that all in person. It was beautiful to be able to sit down and connect together and see all of the breadth of work that had been done by everybody, across agencies and brands, which was just incredible to see in person.” - Jessica Marshall, Influencer Partnerships Executive at Awin.

Advice from the judges

To find the deserving winners, reliable, knowledgeable, and experienced judges are needed at the table, including previous judges like Danielle Goodall, Senior Advocacy, Partnerships & Events Manager for Volvo Cars.

“The data and the results side of things are super important! There were a few entries that I judged last year where that could have been stronger. I think the category winners did all make sure to include really strong data, results, and analytics in their submissions.”

Goodall shared her experience of judging the IMAs and her best tips for submitting an award-winning entry, saying, “Remember that the judges are also consumers. Bring that campaign or story to life and remember that there is a human being at the end of that entry submission.”

Goodall concludes, “The more entertaining and engaging the submission, and the quality of the information in there the better.”
