AwardsFinalists.pdfIf you’ve ever been curious to see what truly fair, independent and authoritative judging looks like, then you could have done worse than to have been a fly on the wall at the Hotel Warwick in New York on July 12, where 41 of the industry’s smartest leaders, thinkers and doers assembled to review and score approximately 650 entries to the MM&M Awards 2010.  

When we assemble our panel each year, we try to achieve a mix of experience of previous judges with fresh perspective from our newbies—the split between regulars and rookies is usually about 50:50. We want new blood, but at the same time we need a certain degree of continuity and familiarity among judges to ensure that the high standards we set for the MM&M Awards scoring procedures are maintained.

This year, we were delighted to land some highly talented first-time judges: new recruits from the client side included J&J director of corporate communications, Marc Monseau; Genentech senior group manager, e-marketing, Jessica Wong; Siemens director of product marketing, Tom Treusdell; and Endo product  director, Christine Coyne. Fresh blood elsewhere included Amy Cowan, head of industry, health, at Google; Nick Colucci, president and CEO of Publicis Healthcare Communications Group; and Marc Weiner, managing partner of Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide.

Each judge applied their skills and experience diligently and tirelessly throughout the day, giving us the best chance of picking the most deserving winners. Each group reviewed and discussed every single submission, one by one, before scoring them in confidence. Remember, MM&M is not involved in the judging beyond adding and checking the numbers—not even the judges know who the winners are until they are revealed for the first time at our Awards presentation and dinner in NewYork on October 12. This process is what makes the MM&M Awards the most coveted and prestigious program in the industry.
