19 Feb, 2024

The MACE Excellence Awards – presented annually during a gala dinner at the MACE National Conference in the last quarter of the year – celebrates the best campaigns and other marketing, advancement, and communication achievements among member institutions.

The Excellence Awards are only open to paid-up MACE members, and each member institution nominates as many of their best projects/ campaigns as they want to, after which entries are evaluated by our panel of expert evaluators comprising senior marketing, advancement, and communication professionals hand-picked from tertiary institutions and commerce and industry.

Entries with points above the thresholds receive Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum Awards, with other prizes including the Chairperson’s Award of Excellence, MACE Award for Outstanding Research, and the Severus Cerff Award for Consistent Excellence.

Last year’s Excellence Awards Ceremony took place at Pigalle restaurant in Cape Town on the evening of Thursday 16 November 2023, marking the end of the two-day MACE Annual National Conference, hosted in 2023 by the University of the Western Cape.

The date, venue, and deadlines for entries into the 2024 MACE Excellence Awards will be announced soon, but it’s never too early to start thinking about which campaigns/ projects you want to submit – and to start preparing your entries. A well-constructed entry that adheres to the guidelines for entries can make all the difference in grabbing the recognition your project deserves!
