Please provide a concise description of the context within which the campaign operated. Include information on product/service positioning, level of competitiveness, market conditions and trends, challenges faced by the industry, as well as cultural and political sensitivities.

Define target markets and segments, including demographics profile of target audience and scope of campaign (local or regional).

Describe the key message of the campaign. Describe the creative approach and the targeting strategy, backing them with insights and/or findings from research conducted (if any).  List and explain the communications mix and weighting used to implement the campaign and the reasons why these channels were selected.

Describe the impact of marketing initiatives on business performance.  This should be elaborated in context of the strategic objective, difficulty of the task at hand, and overall category trends. 
The results achieved are the main benchmark in this Tangrams.  Results must be quantifiable and have a clear and direct co-relation with the marketing objectives.  Insights into campaign executions will also support a contextual consideration. 
Restate your objectives and KPIs to help judges easily reference the information and demonstrate Revenue and Profit ROMIs and commercial payback from the campaign. Entries will benefit from the ability to isolate a return on marketing investment, not just a picture of sales growth or changes in brand measures.
Jury will be looking for quantifiable evidence supporting initiative impact with respect to both the market and the category from credible sources.  Where possible, provide facts and figures substantiating claims.  Entrants should provide third party verification of supporting data.
If your campaign is for Charity or Government clients, then please explain the impact they had, e.g. key message penetration, changes to consumer behaviour.

Please explain if there were any other factors that may have impacted on the effectiveness of your campaign. E.g. sales, promotions or events that occurred during the campaign period and that would have influenced the results. You may use econometrics, tests, extrapolation and/or simply explain why communications were significant to the brand’s success and illustrate other key factors via charting/tables etc.
