Amazon Ads Partner Awards reveal 2023 finalists

Amazon Ads Partner Awards reveal 2023 finalists

Entries were invited from all regions of the world

Thirty entries have made it through to the final shortlist of the 2023 Amazon Ads Partner Awards which celebrate the innovative, imaginative and effective ways that partners use Amazon Ads for their clients.

For the first time, submissions were open to all regions of the world where Amazon Ads is available, expanding beyond the US and UK this year. As a result, entries more than doubled, topping 500.

Also new for 2023 is a fresh category line-up, consisting of Creative Brand Building; Performance; Challenger; Technology Innovation and Global Expansion.

This is the third year of the awards which were set up in the UK in 2021 to celebrate and reward outstanding work by Amazon Ads partners that delivers performance and growth for their clients. In 2022, they grew to incorporate the US also. 

The 2023 global winners will be feted at a Gala at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City on October 23rd. 

A panel including judges from Kantar and the Interactive Advertising Bureau, as well as Amazon, selected the 2023 shortlist below. In their analysis of entries this year, the judges noted a higher degree of collaboration, with more than one partner named in entries. Overall, submissions came from 293 unique partners across the world.

Every award in the competition carries equal weight. However, Creative Brand Building has two awards - endemic and non-endemic - to cater both for brands which sell on Amazon and also for those which don’t. And three prizes will be awarded in both the Performance and Challenger categories; one for each of the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions. 

Eligible work for the 2023 awards ran between May 2022 and April 2023 and was delivered by partners who have Verified or Advanced status within the Amazon Ads Partner Network. The network was set up in 2021 to support agencies and tool providers through training, resources, and by connecting them to advertisers.
