One of the most prestigious nights for US search marketers is shaping up for 2015. Now in its 3rd year, the US Search Awards is calling for entries for its 2015 competition, with winners to be announced at a ceremony held at The Paris Las Vegas Hotel on October 7th.
If you’re going to Pubcon Las Vegas this year, you’ll be missing out on the full experience without an evening of celebrating with your peers at the US Search Awards. You can make the night especially memorable by taking home one of the awards, but first you have to submit an entry.
The deadline for entries is July 17th, 2015, at which time judges begin the decision process. Among the judges this year are Avinash Kaushik from Google, John Gagnon from Bing, and our very own executive editor Kelsey Jones, serving for the 2nd year in a row.
The awards will again be delivered in partnership with industry trade organization SEMPO, members of which will receive a free entry into the competition. The full panel of leading industry experts will be announced as judges shortly.
Disclosure: Search Engine Journal is once again a media partner for the event, and will receive tickets for our team to the event.
What does a win at the US Search Awards mean for you and your brand? Bing’s Duane Forrester weighs in on his big win last year:
“The US Search Awards recognizes some of the best practitioners across the country for their efforts. I was extremely honored to be chosen as the US Search Personality of the Year. Such recognition from this industry was humbling and a real thrill! And while the award was nice, the ability to spend a spectacular evening with some of the smartest folks in our industry was the real reward. I encourage everyone to participate, either by entering the awards or by showing up on the night.”
Mr. Forrester will be passing the torch (or would that be tiara?) to the winner of this year’s US Search Personality of the Year Award. In addition, awards will be presented for Best PPC and SEO Campaigns, Best SEO and PPC Software, Best Small and Large Agency, Best Integrated Campaign, Best Mobile Campaign, and more.
The awards are open to those based and delivering work in the USA. Further details on the competition, along with a list of the 2014 winners, can be found at www.ussearchawards.com.
