What is your policy on Commercial Confidence?
For the purposes of judging, all information provided will be treated in the strictest of confidence and will only be viewed by the judging panel and the Chair of Judges. However, in order to compile the online Awards Supplement, some information may be needed from the winners' and any highly commended written entries. Any information that is commercially sensitive and which may not be used should be clearly marked 'judges eyes only'.
Please bear in mind that the first round of judging will be done solely on the basis of the entry template, therefore it is very important that you fully complete it. In particular, details of return on investment and budget should be provided. The more information you supply, the better the judges will be able to assess your entry.
For further details on the judging criteria, please visit the Judging Criteria page.
How is the Brand of the Year Award shortlist selected?
The consumer brands on the shortlist for this award have been selected based on performance during the calendar year of 2012 using YouGov’s BrandIndex tool.
