Entries open for Shop! ANZ Retail Marketing Awards

Shop! ANZ’s 23rd annual Retail Marketing Awards, are now taking entries!

Australian retail marketing campaigns will be recognised across 26 categories, covering physical displays and shopper experience.

The awards are open to both Shop! ANZ members and non-members, entrants vie for distinguished Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes. Additionally, there will be the Award’s highest honour, Tom Harris Retail Marketing Award (named after Shop! ANZ founder, Tom Harris) on offer.

“Like many, Covid-19 has afforded us the opportunity to reinvent the way things have been done in the past, and as a result we’ve launched a number of new categories to cater to the market where we are at now, as well as overhauling some historic elements that were in need of a modern approach,” says General Manager of Shop! ANZ, Carla Bridge.

“The historic ‘cigar shop Indian’ statuette trophies will be replaced this year for a new and exciting design to be launched on the Awards night that we feel is a better reflection of our industry and caters to the range of cultural sensitivities in the multi-faceted world we live in.”

It’s also been announced that there will be two one-off Covid-19 related cateogories to recognise the impact that coronavirus restrictions have had on the industry.
