The eDigital Social Marketing Awards Australia 2022 (eSMA) are now open to Australian charities running some of the best social marketing campaigns for a good social cause.



The eDigital Social Marketing Awards Australia 2022 celebrate the most accomplished social marketing campaigns in the Australian charity sector.

The eDigital Social Marketing Awards Australia 2022 is not just an award, it is an important indicator of effective use of social marketing techniques by Australian charities for a good social cause. These awards also celebrate Social Marketers’ hard work and commitment to help solve a social issue affecting a community in Australia.

Winning this award is a certificate of excellence for social marketing, an important milestone for your charity’s marketing team.

This is NOT a social media marketing award, this is is a Social Marketing award. If not sure, find the meaning and definition of Social Marketing.


To be eligible to enter and win these awards, you must be a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Australian charity. Only a single entry is allowed per charity. Marketing agencies are welcome to apply on behalf of their clients, however, if your client is selected as the “Winner”, your client will be the receiver of the Awards’ Prize, not you.


The final winner awards prize includes:

  • USD$1000 to the winning entry (must have a Paypal account) and should be used for your charity’s marketing campaigns.
  • Award Badge. The 2022 Award Badge design file will be given to the winner. The winner will be able to exclusively use it on their website and/or other marketing material.
  • Free promotion on our website. A premium article that describes and congratulates your winning entry will be published on eDigital website (One of Australia’s most visited Digital marketing websites – 950k visitors in the last year)
  • Winner announcement to our subscribers.  A winner email announcement will be sent to  our 5k+ subscribers
