Today I’m taking a break from feature announcements and spending money on stupid marketing tactics and are announcing a brand new event for the digital marketing world… AN AWARDS CEREMONY!
Still with me?
The Penguin Awards are a digital marketing awards like no other, we celebrate the best (and not so best) of the industry with the aim of raising money for Charity.
Featuring categories such as
- BEST SEO LOOKALIKE
- BEST OFFICE DOG
- WEIRDEST SEO CAMPAIGN
- THE WE’VE NEVER WON AN AWARD BEFORE AWARD
And my favourite
- BEST GIF RESPONSE
There is at least one category for everyone and with an entry fee of just £10 per entry, we want to be overwhelmed with entries, partly because we want to celebrate and have fun with the industry but more importantly
Every penny raised goes to the Martin House Children’s Hospice. That’s right, not every penny profit. Every penny given to us will go to the charity and Little Warden is covering all additional costs (website, streaming, trophies, postage)
Trophies? You want a trophy.. We’ve got trophies.. We’ve bought the BEST trophies that a ‘trophy joblot’ search on eBay has to offer and if you win, you will be the proud owner of a preloved cheerleader trophy with your name engraved over it.
Head over to www.penguinawards.com and look at the categories and if you don’t feel like entering one then we have a special category just for you, it’s called the I really really want to win this award, award and you can bid for it on eBay in a month up until an hour before the ceremony starts.
Just a quick note from me personally to say how overwhelmed I’ve been with the support from the Digital Marketing community with this event, from a stupid idea on a drive home from a gig to a weekend landing page to now having over £2000 in donations from companies sponsoring categories in less than 5 days, things like this truly bring out the best in our industry
It is SLIGHTLY annoying that this one event has now raised more than the entirety of my running last year AND I’ve already committed to running this year. Had I known I could have sacked it all off and just done a live stream awards from my house I would have done that years ago.
I really hope you will enter the awards and enjoy the live stream, every entry makes a difference and I really need to get rid of this massive amount of trophies on my desk.
I’d like to send by saying thank you to our category sponsors, Little Warden, Kerboo, Sitebulb, Accountancy Extra, Sanity Check, Clockwork Talent, Polemic Digital, 10 Yetis, Biddable Moments, Stat, SERPmetrics, Deepcrawl, Many Minds and we’ve still got a few categories left if you’d like to get involved.
