Why I am judging the awards... "I'm delighted to be judging The Drum Awards for Content 2020, this year has been like never before for content marketers! Not only is the industry operating within the most democratised time for content ever (it is now more competitive than ever for content to stand out)... but on top of that content creators have had to negotiate (and compete with) a global narrative around coronavirus. Being beige with your content is no longer acceptable, in order to compete content must immediately capture attention and hold it... better than ever before. I'll be judging content based on this criteria. What instantly grabs my attention, holds it, and leaves me with the takeaway the marketer wanted. 2020 has been ruthless with how content is consumed... it's only fair the judges are too!"
