Category Chairs 2022


Introducing our 2022 DMA Awards Category Chairs.

Each of our 36 category juries is led and supported by one of our accomplished, adept, and arduous category chairs to create an outstanding shortlist of work.

The chairs then go on to judge all of our Gold winning work in the Grand Prix Judging. There they will represent the Gold winning campaign from their category and judge all the Gold winning work to create our Grand Prix Shortlist.

Finally, they get together to listen, in live time, to the pitches of our three Grand Prix Shortlisted Campaigns and vote on the overall Grand Prix Winner which will be announced at the 2022 DMA Awards Night.
