Says Kevin Kirby, head of AMASA's Roger Garlick sub-committee: "When selecting the panel we took cognisance of all the disciplines that could add value to judging such highly acclaimed media awards. Although the panel is weighted heavily towards media expertise, it includes a media owner, a marketer, a strategist and a creative representative.
All media strategies and innovations entered must have been implemented between 1 January 2002 and 31 December 2002. Both the main Roger Garlick Award and the Youth Award will be judged on the same criteria which includes:
Originality of the idea;
Relevance to the target market.
Although not mandatory, post campaign results will assist in motivating entries.
