Judging Criteria – 2022 Boomerangs

Judging Criteria

Innovation. Creativity. Effectiveness.

The 2022 Boomerang Awards places equal weights for the Innovation, Creativity, and Effectiveness lenses.

Innovation

Beyond just being first to adapt or bearing the latest technology, the Boomerang Awards follow what innovation truly means: a new approach, POV in the way technology is used to impact change to a relevant need in the marketplace, amongst consumers.

It’s not enough that one develops a chatbot, immersive platforms, or is first to implement machine learning, we also look at how differently it addresses a gap, objective, or issue in a way that’s never been explored here in the Philippines.

Creativity

As digital technology is now permeating the way we live, it has gone beyond being a marketing tool or department. The ability of a campaign, program, or execution to be differentiated and distinct from the rest of those using the same platforms and technologies in a creative way is another pillar of the Boomerang Awards. We will look into the big idea and craftsmanship (art+copy+code) on how relevant innovation and effectivity was brought to life for the target market.

Effectiveness

Marketing has always been about value exchanges between brands and consumers, a two-way relationship. The Boomerang Awards uphold the value of the effectiveness of a campaign, program, or execution that achieves the marketing objectives set for the business.

The Boomerang Awards will look into attributable impact to market performance – if it is below objectives set, it has met objectives, or has surpassed objectives – in determining effectivity. In looking at results, we follow the mantra of measuring “metrics that really matter.”
