UK Paid Media Awards 2023

UK Paid Media Awards, organized by Don’t Panic Events will take place on 15 March 2023 online.

Formally the UK Biddable Awards, and the UK Paid Media Awards recognise the contribution that paid to advertise delivers to engagement, clicks, leads, sales, and ultimately profit. The Awards shine a light on campaigns, strategies, teams, and individuals working in paid media and showcase the work that is winning them business and benchmarking for future campaigns.

To the rank top, you must demonstrate your creativity, ability to respond to a changing market, and tactical use of budget.
The awards understand that every industry and sector is different, not just in terms of business area, but in terms of rules, competition, tactics, and strategies that make you stand out from the crowd. In each sector-based category, judges will be examining the thinking, approach, and implementation of campaigns that achieve business goals and outstanding results, whether that is through technical innovation, strategic use of data, or creative use of content across media platforms.

Judged by leading industry experts from across the world, the judges follow an ethical and robust two-step judging process, which provides feedback to every entrant and establishes a shortlist and overall winner. Judges are looking for an innovative addition to the Paid Media industry, one that enhances the way teams and agencies work and achieve results.


UK Paid Media celebrates agencies and teams. Every agency and team faces challenges, but it is how you overcome them to be triumphant that makes you great. Judges will consider company culture and employee development, quality of work, client wins and retention, and growth and profitability. Entries include details of the team, evidence of exceptional work that is transformational and delivers exceptional results, ROI, team development, training opportunities, and staff retention.

Marketing opportunities begin from the moment you submit your entry – press releases, blogs, social media announcements, connection with other nominees and use of the official logo can be utilised with great effect, and if you shortlist or win you can do it all again with a new and improved badge of honour.

Remember you can enter more than one category using the same project or enter one category with multiple projects.
The judges want to see the best of the best and that might be you across different categories, you can enter as many as you like. Just make sure you submit a separate form for each entry and tweak the information so that you ensure you match the criteria.
