The judges studied entries and breakthrough case studies to select their choices across multiple categories. 

The number of submissions were consistent this year, even though this has been a pandemic year. 

Nominations were accepted from senior marketers and team leaders, including CMO/VP/GM/Head of Advertising/Marketing/Retail/Data/Digital in brand marketing across 30 disciplines and industries. 

The power-packed show broadcast to the industry and the world will celebrate the contribution, inspiring leadership and trail-blazing achievements by key players in Malaysia’s marketing communications and media industry. 

The winning candidates have shown their influence and involvement in positive business outcomes – whether market share, revenue growth, or profit, in a responsible manner. 

“While most judges were hunkered down at the home or office, they gave their best to complete the judging over a period of 10 days. It was an exhaustive and robust process, and I have never seen more dedication to world-class benchmarks. The judges are a Who’s Who list in the Asia Pacific business leadership space,” shared Professor John D Chacko, Jury Head of the Malaysian CMO Awards 2020. 

Winners will be honoured during a virtual awards evening on Jan 8, making the event a perfect jumpstart for the industry going into the brand new year! 

Prof Harmandar Singh, President of the Malaysian CMO Awards announced, “We are going through unusual times and while marketing activities have been subdued by COVID-19, brands nevertheless stepped up to the plate to deliver excellence and business results. The judges evaluated how candidates led, adapted and embraced the new way of working and delivered campaigns, launched new initiatives that progressed the economic health of the company, people and brand. Each winner is a truly deserving winner!”
