Annually. we bring together hundreds of members of the marketing community to witness the best of the best and award creative excellence. In 2021, over 500 entries across our awards programs were evaluated by a dedicated roster of more than 300 volunteer judges from various industries.

We welcome applications from industry leaders who bring different perspectives to the judging process. We are committed to addressing systemic racism and biases in Canadian marketing by ensuring that our judging panels are reflective of Canada’s cultural diversity.

To volunteer as a judge, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Senior-level marketer (agency or client) with 7+ years of marketing experience
  • Have an innate sense of fairness, impartiality, and desire to make the CMA awards represent the science and the art of marketing
  • Based in Canada and/or at a Canadian organization
  • Ability to judge award submissions online at any point between July 30 and August 12, 2022, inclusive (Subject to change)

All applications will be reviewed by the CMA and judges will be notified in early July. Due to overwhelming interest, only those applicants who are selected to be a judge will be contacted.
