2019 judging registration open April 23 - July 15.

Please register your interest in becoming a judge for Shop! ANZ's 2019 Marketing at Retail Awards by filling out our online expression of interest survey here.

All category judging will be carried out online between 29 July and 12 August. There will be no physical judging or exhibition in 2019.

2019 Judges will receive a 2019 Shop! ANZ Awards judge badge for use in their email signature, as well as acknowledgement 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 Marketing at Retail Industry. Many of our judges have 25! 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. Specific Awards including Environmental Stewardship and the Individual Leadership Awards, have specialist judging teams.

Key dates:

Online Judging Commences: Monday 29 July to Monday 12 August

Online People's Choice online judging: Tuesday 13 August to Friday 23 August

Online Pinnacle judging: 13 to 20 August

Following your registration, Shop! will be in contact in the first week of August to confirm your selection and with further information, including your allocated category, judging criteria, and deadlines.
