SEMrush AU Search Awards

Online visibility and content management platform provider Semrush has announced entries are now open for its fourth Semrush AU Search Awards, which this year has added a new pandemic campaign category to spotlight the adaptivity of online marketing professionals during the past 12 months.

The Semrush Search Awards seek to recognise the best marketing campaigns and the brightest marketing teams in Australia and New Zealand, with more than 700 applicants over the past. Companies that have significantly improved their online presence and adapted their marketing efforts in the past 12 months are welcome to enter. 

In addition to submissions for the best pandemic adapting marketing campaign, Semrush invites entries from content writers, PR professionals and marketing creatives as well as young guns for young search professional of the year (free to enter).

The judging panel features senior executives in the marketing, advertising, digital and search space including Finder’s COO Jeremy Cabral, Canva’s International Growth Opportunities expert Irene Lee, and Kmart’s Head of Digital Melissa Wong.

“This year, more so than ever before, as all eyes remain glued on the online space. Our industry is being pushed to its limits as marketers continue to excel in digital marketing in stressful conditions and a competitive market. And for that, excellence must be rewarded,” said Olga Andrienko, Vice President of Brand Marketing at Semrush.

“As we endure another tough year, we believe it’s important to recognise companies that have risen above, significantly improved their online presence and adapted their marketing efforts during the global pandemic over the past 12 months,” she said.

The entries are now open, and the final deadline for submissions is October 5, 2021.

A shortlist of finalists will be announced on October 27. The AU Search Awards will be conducted virtually for the second year in a row, with the Ceremony scheduled to be held online on November 9, 2021.
