In addition to campaign work, judges may review other PR and marketing-related work, such as writing, video, website content, social media, events, and more. If you’re passionate about your work and you want to help us continue to raise the bar while celebrating New England’s agencies and organizations, we want you. To apply, fill out this short questionnaire.

If selected, in the early spring, you will be asked to review one or two Bell Ringer award categories, collaborate with at least one other judge who has professional experience similar to yours, and rate the work against provided criteria through a private online system.

Becoming a Bell Ringer judge is a high honor; you can expect the following and more:

  • Network with other judges who work for leading New England-based companies, agencies, and media outlets
  • Influence the PR and marketing industry by determining and showcasing the most innovative work
  • Evaluate New England’s ground-breaking PR and marketing work

How Do We Assign Work to Judges:

We seek judges with at least 10 years of relevant industry experience to judge campaign categories. Judges are assigned categories and work based on their expertise and the industries in which they have the most experience working. For single item entries, such as a bylined article, we seek judges with at least 8 years of relevant professional experience.

Bell Ringer judges work in a wide range of organizations and industries, including agencies, in-house/corporations, non-profits, education, media, technology, consumer, business-to-business, healthcare, and as independent practitioners.
