The Marketing Research and Insight Excellence awards consist of categories covering both individual and team achievements as well as awards for best projects, MR tools and those that give of their talents to make the world a better place.

Powered by Quirk’s Media – the industry’s most respected provider of content, events and resources for marketing researchers – the awards shine a much-deserved spotlight on the researchers, vendors and products and services that are adding value and impact to marketing research. 


Whether you’re an agency or a client-side researcher, if you win, you’ll bask in the adulation and approval of a ballroom full of your peers and go home with a beautiful award as proof of your achievement.
