MCV Awards 2010: Categories Announced

The cut-off isn’t until February, but how about rounding off your year by dreaming of a big win at the MCV Awards 2010?

Next year’s prestigious event takes place on Thursday April 22nd at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London.

Amongst the 17 awards up for grabs are new categories such as Supermarket of the Year, Peripherals & Accessories Brand of the Year and Best Game Creative (single advertising execution).

Over 600 retailers and execs from across the UK and European trade will be there on the night, with huge media coverage.

The formal lobbying process starts in January, with MCV readers encouraged to nominate themselves, suppliers or even put competitors forward. For sponsorship opportunity enquiries, click here.

A set of Finalists will then be announced by MCV in March and a Judging Panel of up to 100 top retailers and senior execs will then vote for the winners.

We also plan to widen the number of judges voting on the PR Team prize, to allow leading journalists and media bosses to have their say.

All judges are revealed after the votes have been cast.

We’re hugely excited by the plan for the next MCV Awards and believe we have made some real progress in further tweaking the categories,” commented editor-in-chief Michael French.

And these really are awards that mean something. The entire industry gets involved, so if you have done something that should be considered, please do let us know.”
