We are beyond excited to share that Venture Forge has been shortlisted as one of three finalists for the EMEA Challenger Award at the 2023 Amazon Ads Partner Awards!

We’re not big believers in the “enter every industry award to look successful” approach, preferring our team to focus all their efforts on delivering for our clients so that your success and satisfaction does the talking for us.

But we do make one exception – and that’s to enter the Amazon Ads Partner Awards.

Set up in 2021 to celebrate and reward “outstanding work by Amazon Ads Partners that delivers performance and growth for their clients”, this is the first year that submissions have been extended to take in all of Amazon’s global regions – and as a result, the number of entries has more than doubled.

So to make the shortlist of just 30 Partners this year is all the sweeter – out of 500+ entries, it puts us in the top 1.8% globally!

This incredible recognition for our team in an Awards event with strict criteria that tests us against the very best in the industry is a huge achievement, and we couldn’t be prouder of everyone at Venture Forge.

So what are we shortlisted for?

We’re one of three finalists in the EMEA Challenger category, and one of nine finalists globally (there are three for each of three regions; EMEA, the Americas and APAC).

The Challenger Award celebrates Partners who’ve delivered an impactful Amazon Ads strategy which has exceeded their client’s business objectives despite a limited budget.

Entries must demonstrate how their use of creative thinking, powerful strategy, innovative tactics and overall efficiency allowed them to maximise the resources on offer and deliver results that went above and beyond expectations.

Our Shortlisted Strategy

We’ve been shortlisted for our work for pasta brand ZENB, creating campaigns with the special sauce they needed to make their mark on the marketplace – and all on a cost-conscious budget!

This exciting brand is stirring up the traditional pasta scene with their delicious range of gluten-free yellow pea pasta – and they needed Amazon growth that matched their ambitions.

Our team’s strategy was deliciously creative and a brilliant reflection of our ability to think different, intertwining ZENB’s unique brand narrative with custom visuals and video to boost their brand and showcase the art of introducing something fresh to a classic market.

And when are the winners announced?

Winners will be chosen and announced after Amazon Unboxed in October, with a gala event held at The Lighthouse in Chelsea Piers, New York to celebrate.

We’ve got everything crossed but, regardless of the eventual result, we can’t share enough how proud we are of our utterly brilliant team for this massive achievement – one that’s a lasting testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Venture Forge!
