No awards show compares with APPIES

The journey to fame is never easy. And when it comes to The APPIES Marketing Campaigns Awards the road to fame is lined with experiences never seen in any awards show.

It is not just about entering your submission and be done with it. APPIES is like an exam of sorts. That’s why each winner is truly deserving, because they have gone through robust preparation, displayed professional presentation techniques and stimulated an enriching discourse among judges and audience.

At APPIES, you are summoned to state your case on stage and argue it to convince the judges in person.

And the dynamic variety of judging talent makes it even more challenging. It is a test of marketing acumen and perseverance.
