The Commerce & Shopper Jury Assembled for Effie Greater China's First Online Preliminary Judging Session of 2020
 
Thirteen well-known industry leaders from brands and agencies, including members of the commerce & shopper marketing committee, held online judging for the first time.  A professional, and diversified jury panel has gathered, demonstrating the principles of fairness and justice for the Effie Awards.
 
Before the case review officially started, judges started with an introductory session where the Effie Greater China working group gave a detailed explanation on the competition rules and evaluation process, and in-depth training on Effie's effectiveness evaluation standards and concepts to ensure that the scoring is fair.

All the judges of the commerce & shopper marketing preliminary review meeting reviewed cases at the same time, and each case was fully discussed to ensure that the case was evaluated in the most impartial way.
 
Effie judges cannot give scores to their own/clients’ brands and their competitors.  All judged who needed to recuse from a particular case were asked to move to the video waiting room until the group discussion was completed.
 
The judges upheld the Effie quality of review, judging each case with the most rigorous and professional standards. Following Effie's "Four Pillars", the jury carefully explored and selected effective marketing cases that are eligible to compete for winning the Effie Awards.
 
The jury expressed that many Shopper Marketing cases this year, regardless of brand scale, can be seen that they have made many attempts and explorations in co-branding, breakthrough and outreach. From problem solving, to consumer insight and content integration, brilliant ideas have emerged.
 
Thank you very much to all of this year’s judges.
