The awards aim to set the benchmark for tech, digital, and leading-edge innovation in marketing. Digital platforms, channels, communities, campaigns, craft awards, publishers, emerging channels, and more are recognised at the event.

IAB South Africa CEO, Josephine Buys, says, "With a crop of inspiring entries, an exciting multi-disciplinary panel of judges, and a 10-year legacy of promoting excellence in digital, this awards season is a special one."

#Bookmarks2018 is preceded by the IAB Digital Summit. Buys adds, "The Summit aims to provide thoughtful and insightful content from top calibre local and international speakers. This year will be no different, and speakers will cover artificial intelligence, fake news, privacy and security, and more."

Standard Digital Summit tickets cost R1 960, while IAB member tickets cost R1 690. Tickets to #Bookmarks2018 and after party cost R 1 090.

"Last year’s awards ceremony and Summit sold out in record time, so book your ticket now to avoid disappointment," concludes Buys.
