SMA 2021 Shortlist out TODAY!

Our first judging day was held earlier this week and we are now able to reveal who has made the shortlist for this year's Sales and Marketing Awards

Huge congratulations to everyone who has made it onto the 2021 SMA shortlist. 

Judging was no easy task becasue the standard of entry was exceptionally high and we had to make some difficult decisions, but we are finally able to reveal who has made this year's list. 

To all those that didn't make it this year, please don't give up and we hope you will try again next year. 

As you will also see, there is one category which doesn't have a shortlist, but will be announced on the night. This is because there was a standout winner. 

Thanks to everyone who has made the effort this year, it really is vitally important to keep these awards going and to celebrate all the brilliant initiatives and hard work that goes on throughout the year in our brilliant industry. 

Below is the shortlist, with each category on a different page.
