There are just a few days left to get submissions in for this year’s CMO50 2021 program recognising Australia’s most innovative and effective marketing leaders.

CMO50 submissions are due in on Monday 16 August 2021. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your marketing leadership, as well as the work of your team, recognised and get that questionnaire completed now!

The CMO50 2021 is our annual list recognising Australia’s 50 most innovative and effective Chief Marketing Officers exhibiting demonstrable impact across their organisation.

Now in its seventh year, the CMO50 list celebrates those leading the marketing function who are demonstrating innovative, strategic thinking, driving business change and commercial success, showcasing modern marketing leadership, and enabling greater collaboration and better customer engagement as a result. Through this, we strive to meet our ultimate objective, which is to shine a spotlight on the increased importance of Australian marketing leaders in business.

This year’s program is brought to you once more by our exclusive sponsor, Adobe.

In 2021, we will be working recognise great CMOs by considering:

  • Business contribution and innovation
  • A customer engagement-led approach to marketing thinking and effectiveness
  • The application of data and/or technology in marketing strategy and programs
  • Empowered, bold and strategic thinking
  • Resiliency and adaptability in the face of change
  • Inspired marketing and team leadership
  • Demonstration of marketing’s commercial effectiveness

The CMO50 is open to the top Australia-based marketer within an organisation with responsibility for the vision and strategy of the whole company marketing function. In order to be included in the judging process, marketers have to either self-nominate, or be nominated by a suitable peer, via out standardised submission form. You can download the 2021 questionnaire here.

All completed questionnaires will be reviewed by our CMO50 judging panel, who work together to devise our final list. Please be assured questionnaires and commercially sensitive information will be kept confidential to the judging panel.

This year’s fantastic CMO50 judging panel can be found here.

We sincerely thank all of our judges for the time and effort they spend in helping produce this list.

Nominations for the CMO50 2021 are due to be submitted no later than Monday 16 August August 2021. For any questions, please contact CMO Publisher and Editor, Nadia Cameron: Nadia_cameron@idg.com

Final selections are confirmed by our judging panel and are not open to further discussion or negotiation. All scores will be kept confidential and are not being released publicly, nor will they be discussed with any individual applicants.

The 2021 CMO50 will be revealed at our exclusive CMO50 event, which we’re delighted to say is returning to an in-person format in Sydney on 21 October. The CMO50 2021 list and profiles will also feature in CMO’s October 2021 magazine edition, as well as online in our dedicated portal: www.cmo.com.au/cmo50.

Those who nominate will automatically receive an invite-only ticket to attend the CMO50 dinner and network with the CMO50 alumni representing the best marketing leaders from across Australia.
