All entries were submitted by cut-off date July 20th, 2020 and will be reviewed by the CMA for completeness and then assigned to judges.

2020 CMA [Canadian Marketing Association] Awards – Judging Commences Today

I’m thrilled to participate as a Judge in this year’s CMA Awards in the Business Impact Discipline.

2020 shows another record number of entries. Judging commences today across six disciplines: brand building, business impact, customer experience, engagement, innovative media and martech. Within each discipline, entries compete with campaigns in one of nine categories (automotive, business, consumer products, consumer services, financial, food & beverage, health care, retail and social causes). In addition, nominations are accepted for Marketer of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award, and a select panel of judges select the Top Cause and Best of the Best winners, from the top entries across their respective disciplines and categories.

This November, the CMA Awards Gala will be virtual. The marketing community loves to celebrate. Stay tuned for further details!

Good luck to everyone !

Wine Review: Franck Millet Sancerre Blanc

Tasting Notes:

This nervy wine comes from Bué, one of the top villages of Sancerre, which is grown in limestone-clay soil and reflects the unique terroir of the region.

Powerful nose with lots of aromatic qualities developing over a period of time. Tangy with mineral texture, and offering lime flavors, displaying a surprising suppleness and roundness. Very long on the palate.

This wine makes an excellent aperitif and pairs beautifully with oily seafood dishes and cheeses.
