Celebrate Your Excellence at Congress!

YES Awards

Are you an emerging talent in the world of market research? The Young ESOMAR Society (YES) Awards are your chance to shine! Open to young professionals and students, this award recognizes innovative research methodologies, impactful findings, and the power of new voices in our industry.

Research Effectiveness Awards

Showcasing the tangible impact of market research, the ESOMAR Research Effectiveness Awards honors research buyers who have significantly influenced decision-making, strategy, and performance. If your research has driven remarkable business or societal outcomes, we want to celebrate it.

Five considerations before you submit!

  1. We need original content that has never been shown before and actively encourage alternative presentation formats that enrich, entertain and exhilarate the audience!

  2. We understand not all proposals require a full paper (eg client-side perspectives to fuel debate, personal tales of transformation). Providing the committee agrees, we're open to exploring alternative formats to capture your ideas.

  3. We guarantee maximum exposure for your paper and work. It will be shared with the Congress audience and all ESOMAR Members and made accessible to 75,000 WARC-subscribed marketers. Additionally, your paper qualifies for prestigious ESOMAR awards, offering cash prizes for winners. Don't miss this genuine opportunity to showcase your excellence.

  4. If submitting a case study, client commitment to co-present is crucial; their withdrawal may lead to your presentation being revoked.

  5. "So What?" Before you submit, clarify why a global audience can't miss this and what valuable insights they'll gain. The committee will individually review your outline, and then they will convene for two days to make final decisions. Given the abundance of excellent content, make their challenging task even tougher!

Submit your proposal by 16 February

Programme Committee:

The high-quality content is made possible by the hard work of the Programme Committee, which reviews the papers and presentations submitted to deliver the best possible insights for you.
