Judging Guidelines

INMA Global Media Awards 2017


As a judge in INMA Global Media Awards competition, you will see the world’s best marketing material produced by news media companies during the past year.

Media company executives submitted their entries via the internet to an online Entry Management System. You will judge pre-determined categories within this database. Please be aware that databases have their own set of rules (and this one is no different).

The judging deadline is Sunday, February 26.



To judge the INMA Global Media Awards, you need a good pair of eyes, a fresh mind, a little patience … and a few key technical requirements. These include:

• A fast connection to the Internet.

• 4-8 hours, which can be broken up and completed at your leisure.

• The latest versions of QuickTime, Windows Media Player, and Adobe

• Basic tools such as a web browser and the capability to view the following file types:

o PDF (images)

o JPEG (images)

o MP3

If you do not have these capabilities on your computer, please advise INMA. There is no other way to view the creative submissions. These formats are standard on most computers.


Judging is simple. First, log into the system using your login and password provided to you by e-mail.

Second, select your category from the drop down menu provided, which will then take you to the list of entries for that specific category and entry groups. Please note you must judge entries for both entry groups (Group 1 and Group 2) within your assigned category.


On the judging page, we ask you to take four actions:

1. Read the objectives and results.

2. View each creative campaign entered.

3. Score each entry.

4. Comment on each entry that you believe may merit award consideration.

You are being asked to score – on a scale of 1 to 50 – the overall quality of the concept, creativity, graphic design, production, and results of each marketing campaign.

Generally, scores are based on the following:

• 1-10 Fail

• 11-20 Poor

• 21-30 Average

• 31-40 Good

• 41-50 Great

You will score each entry along with at least two other judges. The entry with the highest score will be awarded first place, and the second- and third-highest scores will be awarded second- and third-place certificates.


To reiterate, you are judging within a Web-based database. This database is like all others with its own “unique” set of properties. Here are some helpful hints:

1. Can I change my scores and comments? Please be aware that you may go back and re-score or change your comments in any “scored” entry. “Scored” entries reside in the section labeled

“Entries you have judged.”

2. Can I jump among entry groups? Yes. You will be asked to judge two groups within a category – one for Local/Regional brands and one for National/Global brands. You may start with any group listed, but we recommend once you start judging a group you finish before moving to the next group. This will allow you to judge like-sized companies against similarly focused companies.

3. Can I take a break? You may stop judging at any time by logging out of the system. Please keep in mind the system will automatically time you out if there is no activity after an extensive amount of time. In both scenarios, simply return to the login page and type in your login and password. So long as you have hit the “Save Score” button, your entries will be saved for the next time you choose to judge. You have the option to judge in one sitting, or you may judge as many times as you like between February 12 and February 26. Please allow 4-8 hours to complete the judging process. Please don’t wait until the last minute to judge!

4. How do I navigate the database? There are only two pages for judging. Please click on the icons provided at the top of each page to navigate within the system.

5. When am I done? When you have completed all entry groups, you will either be prompted to judge your next pre-assigned category or go to the Conclusion page.

6. How do I judge a non-English entry? If the campaign objectives and results were not provided in English, INMA has endeavoured to translate them. It was strongly suggested in the Call For Entries that the judging would be conducted in English and providing a translation would assistjudges. If you have language-related questions beyond what is provided, please contact Raquel at awards@inma.org.


Entries are judged on the basis of concept, creativity, graphic design, production, and results:

1. Concept: Generally related to the objective of campaign. Was the idea compatible with the short- and long-term marketing goals? How does the idea rate with regard to peer entries, available resources, and the market situation?

2. Creativity: Given that an idea/concept can be expressed in many ways, does the campaign have creative impact? Does it work to stand out from other marketing? Does it compel the reader/audience to read/watch? Extra consideration should be given to creative problemsolving, not simply creative implementation.

3. Graphic design: Still related to the campaign’s objective and execution, are the graphics appealing and compelling to the reader? In focusing on the message, are the graphics ambiguous or clear? Do the graphics command attention?

4. Production: How does the production quality and professionalism rate as compared to other

work in the group? Are production techniques effective in the overall delivery of the message?

5. Results: Are there any applicable results of the campaign? Was the campaign pre-tested, posttested or tracked in some measurable form? Does the work achieve its stated objective(s)? If results are not provided, entries should be judged as nearly as possible to the stated objectives.

A campaign should not be rated highly if all other criteria are rated excellent and it fails in terms of its effectiveness.

This competition is not solely about excellent creative work. Rather, the competition rewards an entire process: setting appropriate goals, implementing the creative products, and meeting the stated objectives. Judges should also take into careful consideration whether the material has been produced by an agency or in-house.

Please be aware that at the top of each page within the judging system is the INMA Global Media Awards logo. By clicking on this logo, you will be directed to a Web site that provides “Categories,” “Entry Rules,” and “Helpful Tips” provided to news media executives entering the competition. We strongly recommend that you view these pages to ascertain the instructions given to participants.

Abayan Newspaper

My comment:

That´s a fantastic work.
Visuals are really important on journalism nowdays.
Minute by minute, new readers don´t have time to read everything is comming to their email, twitter account, blog selection, traditional newspaper, Facebook page or any other source of information.

Infographics, interactive graphics, data visuals, diagrams or little charts helps a lot on that hurricane news season.
Readers love them.
Readers appreciate them.
Graphics help companies to develop a big brand.
People talk about graphics, and if they are fine, people get a good impressions on the company’s name.
Graphics attract the ads and the money.

The Abayan graphics I show here are really impressive.
That´s a real power for the Dubai new media.
Believe me, not all graphics in the world are good.
We see everyday a lot of nasty and ugly graphics.
You need the best people on your team to shock the world.
You need time and ideas to present the best graphics.
You need your editor´s support to keep calm on your department.
And you need patience to see the results.

Looking at your work, I see all these things.
Man, Abayan are shocking the world with these stunning works.
They are clear.
I see a great art direction.
They are not only infographics, they are amazing posters!
Illustrations are admirably excellents.
That´s quality.
That´s different.
That´s the Dubai´s true visual gun.

Congrats for all your team!!!!

Third Media and Entertainment Barometer, a six-monthly consumer survey conducted on behalf of KPMG byYouGov.

«Over the past year traditional media has held up well, and despite the ever growing availability of online media, consumers still expect and consume both. This has led to a mixed ecology, with people accessing content in the traditional way and online. The popularity of consuming media in the traditional way remains very resilient.» David Elms, KPMG

Paywalls & Subscriptions

Subscribers most commonly paid for music (23 percent), online gaming (21 percent), business news/analysis (19 percent), online newspapers/ magazines (19 percent) and TV (19 percent).

Newspapers, books and print magazines

86 percent of consumers said they preferred to consume media offl ine rather than online. The most popular reason was a preference to reading physical copies.

Amongst those who had engaged in new media activities, the highest mean spend was on digital books, with 22 percent of those spending more than £5.

Over the past six months there had been a small increase in the proportion reading digital books.

– Newspaper and magazine readers aged 18-34 were less likely to pay for print media compared with the general population.

– Some major national newspaper groups have introduced paywalls for their online content, and all eyes have been on whether they are likely to be successful in the long term. Our survey suggests that as long as content is available for free elsewhere, the majority of consumers (79 percent) would rather find a different provider than pay for content online.

KPMG in the UK has over 10,000 partners and staff working in 22 offices and is part of a strong global network of member firms. Our vision is simple – to turn knowledge into value for the benefit of our clients, people and our capital markets.

Gray Lady Down
William McGowan
What The Decline and Fall of TNYT means for America.

Hardcover: 300 pages
Publisher: Encounter Books (November 16, 2010)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1594034869
ISBN-13: 978-1594034862

Product Description
The New York Times was once considered the gold standard in American journalism and the most trusted news organization in America. Today, it is generally understood to be a vehicle for politically correct ideologies, tattered liberal pieties, and a repeated victim of journalistic scandal and institutional embarrassment.

In Gray Lady Down, the hard-hitting follow up to Coloring the News, William McGowan asks who is responsible for squandering the finest legacy in American journalism. Combining original reporting, critical assessment and analysis, McGowan exposes the Times’ obsessions with diversity, «soft» pop cultural news, and countercultural Vietnam-era attitudinizing, and reveals how these trends have set America’s most important news icon at odds with its journalistic mission—and with the values and perspectives of much of mainstream America.

Gray Lady Down considers the consequences—for the Times, for the media, and, most important, for American society and its political processes at this fraught moment in our nation’s history. In this highly volatile media environment, the fate of the Times may portend the future of the fourth estate.

Coloring the News: How Political Correctness Has Corrupted American Journalism
William McGowan

Paperback: 262 pages
Publisher: Encounter Books; 1 edition (May 1, 2003)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1893554600
ISBN-13: 978-1893554603
Product Dimensions: 9.2 x 6 x 0.9 inches

From Publishers Weekly
In a book likely to spark controversy, and with the relentlessness of a prosecutor, McGowan (Only Man Is Vile: The Tragedy of Sri Lanka), a fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute, presents case after case in which, he contends, reporters and editors got stories wrong or ignored topics worthy of coverage because of their liberal ideologies and their fear of offending African-Americans, gays or feminists. (In many cases, he says, the journalists later admitted their own timidity.) Both in hiring practices and story coverage, multicultural journalism is «oversimplifying complicated issues» and «undermining the spirit of public cooperation and trust,» McGowan writes. On race, he points to what he calls «soft» coverage of Washington, D.C., mayor Marion Barry and Rev. Louis Farrakhan’s Million Man March. But some of his arguments are inflammatory. Lumping «Gay and Feminist Issues» together in one chapter, he compares the coverage of the Matthew Shepard murder and that of another murder by two gay pedophiles in light of what he calls «the sanctity of the gays-as-victims script.» McGowan also cites biases in reporting on the abortion issue, attributing them to the fact that over 80% of journalists surveyed say they are pro-choice. Detractors will note that journalists rarely cover issues without biases, and that it’s unlikely that journalists of the past covered most causes including the 1960s struggle for civil rights that McGowan holds up as a model for race relations in the United States with the objectivity he trumpets. Skeptics of multiculturalism will love this book, and lefties will love to hate it. (Nov. 15)Forecast: Encounter Books knows how to reach its conservative audience. More generally, this will generate controversy among media mavens.
