Smarties Business Impact Index

Last year the MMA, in partnership with WARC launched the Smarties Business Impact Index. The Index provides an insightful glimpse into who is delivering campaigns that create significant impact across the globe. Entering into the global program and multiple regions all increases your chances of winning a Smarties and makes you eligible to be ranked on the Business Index.

 

Judging Criteria

Judges will evaluate specific criteria in scoring the entry’s business impact and provide four separate scores for specific attributes of the work. Scoring will be weighted as follows:
  1. Strategy – 20%
  2. Creativity – 20%
  3. Execution – 20%
  4. Business Impact – 40%
 

Categories

23 categories including the new AR/VR and 360 Video categories - increase your chances of winning by entering your campaigns in multiple categories and regions.

New Judging Criteria

Due to its exploratory nature, the following categories will have less weight on results than the others – that doesn’t mean though that you shouldn’t include the impact to your current business or potential shifts it will create for your future marketing efforts.

  • Innovation Category
  • The Internet of Things Category
  • AR/VR Category
  • 360 Degree Video Category

Join us on this year's Smarties Pre-Screening Council.

The Pre-Screening Council is comprised of senior level mobile marketers. The council will judge worldwide entries and then cut them down to an elite group for final judging. The final judging, which consists of regional judging, determines the winners for each country and region. To learn more about Smarties region and country programs, please visit our website.

All pre-screening is done remotely during the month of July. There is no conflict with entering The Smarties as well; we make sure no one views their own submissions.
