This Award recognises a contribution made to Responsible Marketing, giving a team or an individual credit for a creative and privacy aware project or initiative.

Rosemary Smith, co-founder of the DPN was an inspirational mentor to many. She made a significant contribution to the marketing and data industries over a number of years. ‘Responsible Marketing’ were the watch words in all her guidance and advice.

This Award, kindly supported by the DMA and the DM Trust, was launched in 2019 in Rosemary’s memory. 


The  judging panel is looking for the following:

  • How you have embraced the principle of “Privacy by Design”
  • How customer needs have been put at the centre of your project
  • How you’ve encouraged your organisation to support you
  • How you can measure the impact of your project?

It’s free to enter and the winners receive £1,000 and a trophy. All entrants are eligible for access to a discount on training at the IDM (Institute of Data and Marketing).

We welcome entries from marketing, privacy or data protection professionals or those teams.
