Does the world need another digital marketing awards

Probably not.. but this isn't just any awards

Every penny raised through sponsorship & entry fees will go to charity

This event is a part of the rundom.run campaign and we are trying to raise £2500 this year to support the Martin House Childrens Hospice.

The Martin House vision is "Every child and young person has access to palliative care when and where they need it." and they provide 24-hour support to children and young people and their families

We are running the Penguin awards to support that and so all trophies, hosting, editing, design and other costs are being covered by Little Warden Ltd.

Last year with silly things like this we raised over £2100 for Martin House.

Penguin Awards Organiser Dom Hodgson is also taking part in 3 half marathons, 5 10k runs and 5 5k runs over the course of 2018 each in a unique costume

Judging Process

As unique as the event itself

Most SEO awards conduct judging panels of noted industry talent and group them over the course of a few dates to narrow down the shortlist to a winner

That sounds great but we don't have that type of time, so we are just going to get my mum to choose the winner in each category

(I will warn you, she still thinks I work for Google and last time I visited I had to explain that the first results in Google were ads)

Sponsors & Partners

What sort of awards would we be without sponsors? (Want your logo here?)
All the Winners will recieve a real trophy. The Penguin awards have aquired a job lot of previously awarded cheerleader trophies that we are.. recycling #savetheplanet

Yep, 100%. We love the other Search awards in the UK but we are always looking for other ways to raise money for charity (and we think they bypass some important categories such as 'best SEO lookalike')

Yep, We've bought £50 worth of cheerleader trophies on eBay and the winners will have their name engraved on each one.

YES! She is not quite SURE what she's doing yet but I'll help her along. Lesson one will be explaining what exactly SEO is.

The award results will be livestreamed on the Little Warden Facebook Page.
