Search Engine Land is launching a new industry awards program, and SEMPO is excited to be a partner! The first-ever Landy Awards will recognize individuals, agencies, and internal marketing teams within the digital marketing community who have demonstrated excellence in executing organic and paid search marketing initiatives.
“SEMPO is thrilled to help celebrate the power of search and honor individuals within our community” says Chris Boggs, Vice President of Programs.
As a proud partner of the Landy Awards, SEMPO has been working with Search Engine Land and industry leaders from Bing and Google to create the inaugural award categories and entry criteria. There are twelve nomination categories for this year’s ceremony, including:
-Best Overall Search Marketing Initiative (SEO & SEM)
-Individual Best Search Marketers of the Year
-Awards specifically for Enterprise and Small Business-level initiatives
Categories have specific submission guidelines, and all entries must include an executive summary, supporting data, and a company logo or headshot. Nominations may be submitted through July 31, 2015. You can see complete list of categories and submission guidelines here. Nominees will be announced September 1, 2015.
The ceremony for the 2015 Landy Awards will be held September 30 in New York City. Proceeds will benefit Be the Match, a bone marrow research and donor registry, and CODE, an S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education) nonprofit. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, visit Search Engine Land.
