It seems every year there's another independent school marketing award to aim for. I like them, mostly because of the opportunity to gain ideas and inspiration from others (I'm a judge of the InspiredSM Awards which gives me even more chance to learn!). But they're also prestigious forms of feedback and can be good for your career!
Here are three to watch (and enter) in 2020.
The InspiredSM awards - these are open to independent schools from around the world (last year saw several winners from the UK). The 2019 awards are set to be announced on 7th January - so please take a look tomorrow! The 2020 awards will be opened later in the year.
The AMCIS Impact Awards - open only to members of the UK's independent school marketing association (but it might be worth joining to enter!). The 2020 closing date is 10th January, so you'll have to hurry!
TES Independent School Awards - Their 'Marketing Campaign of the Year' is the most obvious to watch, but this year also sees an alumni award. The 2020 winners will be announced on 7th February - entries usually close in October for the next year.
And if you're not an independent school, we'll cover other awards next month - but you can still be inspired by these!
