Nigerian Marketing Awards® has become the first award in Nigeria and indeed the entire region to get International accreditation. The release by the UK based The Independent Awards Standards Council (IASC), who run The Awards Trust Mark scheme confirmed this in a statement issued recently as follows:
“August 2022 – We are pleased to announce the successful accreditation of the Nigerian Marketing Awards. The first award in the region to receive an international Awards Trust Mark, these awards will celebrate and honour the hard work of marketing professionals in Nigeria. The Advisory Board is made up of respected individuals such as Prince Yemisi Shyllon, Mr. George Thorpe (founder of MediaReach) and Alhaji Garba Bello Kankarofi (former Regulator for the Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria, APCON). With 32 award categories covering a wide range of marketing areas, it is their hope to become the ultimate accolade for marketing professionals in Nigeria, and to be the most ethical and transparent marketing awards in their region.
The first edition of the awards will be held in November of 2022. Entries will open on 15 August and close on 30 September please visit https://www.nma-ng.com/ for more details.”
In his reaction to the accreditation, Mr. Anthony Agenmonmen, founder, Nigerian Marketing Awards®, said the organization is immensely proud of this achievement and the opportunity to be listed in a global directory of awards: http//www.awards-list.co.uk. “This accreditation is a major boost as we look forward eagerly to the spectacular night of 11.11.2022 when we host the maiden edition of the Nigerian Marketing Awards®” he said.
The Awards Trust Mark scheme is a not-for-profit accreditation programme run by The Independent Awards Standards Council with the goal of, as the name suggests, enhancing trust between those entering awards schemes, and the organisations running them.
