SEMrush, the world’s leading competitive research service for online marketing, is hosting its inaugural Australian Search Awards at the Sydney Opera House on October 23. This gala dinner and presentation will acknowledge Australian marketing campaigns that have achieved exemplary growth and revenues. The deadline for entries has recently passed, but the field of twenty categories including entries from individuals, brands and agencies, will be whittled down until a winner is selected. We are proud to announce that our very own Jim Stewart will be a judge during this prestigious event that will take place over a two-stage process that will formulate shortlists in each category before a final judges’ meeting to evaluate entries to determine a winner. Jim’s appointment to the judging panel is testament to the respect he holds in the search community and an acknowledgment of his expertise from his peers. He will be joined by other industry leaders in the marketing, search, and digital arenas including Atlassian’s Kevin Indig, Canva’s Irene Lee, and Vodafone’s Lyndon Barnett.
