    Bookmarks 2022 announces its jury panels

    As awards season kicks into high gear, The Bookmark Awards announces its 2022 jury panels who will evaluate and award the best of the best at the awards ceremony to be held in July. Each of this year's eight panels will be headed up by a jury chair, selected for their experience and expertise in their respective fields.
    Bookmarks 2022 announces its jury panels

    This year’s eight categories consist of Marketing, Publishing, Performance Marketing, Social, Community and Influencer Marketing, Builders, Innovative Engineers, Youth Action, and Special Honours. With the aim to place users first, create and maintain a consistent approach to measurement, transform the industry from within, and provide trustworthy digital supply chains, the 2022 Bookmarks have embraced the key priorities of IAB South Africa.

    Leading the charge of transformation

    In keeping with IAB South Africa’s mandate to transform the industry from within, the Bookmarks panels are comprised of a diverse group of South Africans from within the digital and marketing industries. All of the panel members are nominated by their peers to ensure that the judging panel is not only indicative of and endorsed by the larger industry but that all work submitted for the awards is judged fairly by those with relevant expertise.
