Bestowed annually across 10 categories, the awards recognize top senior marketing executives and are the only awards of their kind given to CMOs by their peers. A total of four winners per category will be determined by Oct. 17, 2018, and all finalists, winners, and the 2018 CMO Hall of Fame inductee will be honored at The CMO Awards Ceremony Dinner on Nov. 13, 2018, in New York City.
Those eligible for award nomination must currently hold the title of CMO or be serving as a senior marketing executive for a major company, brand or organization. Eligibility does not require membership in The CMO Club.
