Please register your interest in becoming a judge for Shop! ANZ's 2021 Retail Marketing Awards by filling out our online expression of interest survey here.

All category judging will be carried out online from 14 to 28 February, 2022. There will be no physical judging or exhibition.

2021 Judges will receive a 2021 Shop! ANZ Awards judge badge for use in their email signature, as well as acknowledgment in Shop! ANZ Awards materials and on the Shop! ANZ website.

More than 70 senior industry representatives judge the Shop! ANZ Awards each year. While judges must be a Shop! ANZ Member, Shop! does reserve the right to use a non-member as a judge to balance the judging teams as needed.

Applicants must have a minimum five years of experience in the Retail Marketing Industry. For the judging process, judges are divided into teams with representation from all areas of the industry, including retailer, brand, POP, agency, and shopper insights.

The groups will be assigned to categories that do not conflict with their companies’ primary areas of business or with any entry assigned to them. No judge can judge a category their company is entering. Current Shop! Board Members are not permitted to judge.

Online Judging Commences: Monday 14 February to Monday 28 February 2022
