The goal of the CMA Awards is to recognize the top marketers in the country for excellence in marketing, whatever the discipline, whatever the sector.
Of course, a marketing campaign can't start without a strategy. It can't be done without great creative. And it can't succeed without great results.
Our belief: the more equitably the work is judged, the more meaningful the awards will be to the winners and to the entire Canadian marketing community.
