B&T Awards are back and bigger than ever in 2019. This year, We’re pulling out all the stops. Held for the first time at The Venue in Alexandria with four brand-spanking new categories and an incredible swag of new judges, this is the industry event of the year.

The Awards wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of our judges, who we are revealing today. And, in even better news, we are still looking for more judges, so if you’re keen, here’s what you need to know.

We’re looking for CMOs or senior marketers with 7-plus years of experience to judge this year’s B&T Awards.

To express your interest to join the judging panel, please email riin@bandt.com.au along with your LinkedIn profile and a few words about why you’d like to participate.
