This year, the event has been made earlier with the deadline of entries earmarked on May 26. Said timelineadjustment reflects brand builders’preference and sentiments as they expressed in the last survey that this isthe ideal schedule when there are lesser brand activation programs and thus more time to prepare theircampaign documents. With this invitation for entries, PANAta Awards 2023 also revealed more exciting and inclusive categoriesrecognizing the ever-evolving brand initiatives and the new players.
In view of diverse business magnitude and objectives, a separate category has been allocated for SME’s so thatthey do not have to compete with the multi million budget of the bigger brands.

The brand’s creative use of media is highlighted in the category Brand Effectiveness through the use of Marketing Channels. This is broken down into 2 sub categories to include single use and integrated campaign.
Big budgets are not always required to achieve results as not all channels are always to be utilized.One just has to be creative and focused. Thus, these categories.
Latest addition of awards are in recognition of the brand’s significant partners in accomplishing its communication plans.
These include Creative Agency of the Year, Media Agency of the Year and the MediaNetwork of the Year. Only Brands/Clients can nominate for these categories.
