As the industry’s consummate honor, Adweek’s Brand Genius Awards salute best and brightest executives working in branding and marketing today—but we want your help in finding them. Do you work with a fearless chief marketer who bursts with ideas, breaks with convention and delivers measurable results? Then please, introduce us.

The Brand Genius class of 2019 will be chosen by a panel of senior Adweek editors and select industry experts. This year’s award recipients will be honored at a gala awards dinner to be held during Brandweek, Nov. 3-6, in Palm Springs, Calif.

Nominating is easy. Using the fields below, tell us why your Brand Genius meets our four criteria. (Note: All nominees must have a corporate title with a consumer brand, big or small—we cannot consider agency talent or consultants.) Be as specific as you can. Use examples if possible.

In the past 12-18 months, the successful nominee has:

• Played a key leadership role in developing and/or growing a brand—including introducing a new product, revamping an existing one or guiding a turnaround effort.
• Conceived and/or led the development of a truly innovative marketing campaign or otherwise guided the overall marketing of a brand in a definably new direction. (Courageous thinking and trend-bucking a plus.)
• Deployed the full arsenal of marketing tactics—including traditional, digital, social, experiential—to maximum effect.
• Proved the value of his/her marketing vision by producing measurable results in terms of fiscals, customer counts or other useful metrics. (Data that supports a candidate’s accomplishments a plus.)

Get your candidates in early! The deadline for nominations is Monday, June 10, 2019.
