The Drum Awards for Marketing has three regional competitions covering the Americas, EMEA and APAC, allowing The Drum to give each region the focus it deserves.

With a new look for 2023, The Drum Awards for Marketing will continue to reward the best work, companies and people, but will now include a host of new categories for sectors and disciplines.

This year’s awards will be chaired by Mastercard’s chief marketing and communications officer Raja Rajamannar and Tata’s top marketer Harish Bhat.

Meanwhile, Tata’s brand custodian Bhat will chair the jury in the APAC region. He will lead an esteemed panel of marketing talent from across the APAC region, including marketers from Intel, Mars, Bata India, AB InBev India, Hubspot, South China Morning Post, Farm Easy, Deutsche Bank and Twitter.

In EMEA the chair announcement remains under wraps, but the jury will feature marketers from brands including M&S, Funkin Cocktails, Envision Racing, Deliveroo, Barclays, Condé Nast, Burger King UK, Tesco, Spotify, Nando’s, Boots, Mercedes-Benz Cars, Dole Sunshine Company, Coty and Adidas.

With a record-breaking awards festival just completed and world-changing work featuring prominently, the juries for 2023 will be looking for entries that hit those heights once again.
