Nominations can be received until October 25, 2020 and will be considered by our expert jury in November, who will create a shortlist.
Each jury member will vote for their six preferred candidates from the full list of nominations. Those votes will be added together and those marketers with the highest score will be shortlisted. In the event of a tie, WFA President and Mastercard CMCO Raja Rajamannar will cast the deciding vote.
The shortlisted marketers will be profiled on the WFA website and by our media partner The Drum to allow everyone to learn more about their successes in addressing the challenges facing their brands.
The marketing industry will then be able to vote for the winner of the WFA Global Marketer of the Year during the public voting phase. These votes will account for 50% of the score, with another 50% coming from a new vote by the expert jury, considering just the shortlisted marketers.
The winner will be announced in February 2021.
