HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The top Marketing efforts of the year were officially announced at the MMA SMARTIES Awards Vietnam 2023 on the evening of October 26 after more than two months of rigorous screening and review. This is a prominent event that has long piqued the interest of the Vietnamese media and marketing sector.
Season 10 of the SMARTIES Awards Vietnam 2023 was a spectacular success.
The year 2023 commemorates a decade of successful SMARTIES Awards in Vietnam. This award recognizes the greatest marketing initiatives of the year that directly influence and contribute to the growth and construction of the marketing industry’s future.
The MMA SMARTIES Awards, holding by MMA Global Inc., validate the Vietnamese marketing community’s “Prestigious and Distinguished” status. From announcing the program’s return until its official date, the organizing committee received hundreds of submissions from various sectors and areas to compete for awards.
SMARTIES Vietnam 2023 has redesigned the award, introducing a whole new category Live Streaming in addition to the core categories from prior years. This category seeks to recognize direct advertising initiatives delivered via live streaming, a recent marketing trend.
Many new names were nominated for the Industry Awards competition’s most important award: Advertiser of the Year, Emerging / New Brand of the Year, Brand of the Year, Digital Agency of the Year, and Holding Agency Company of the Year.
The top campaigns in SMARTIES Vietnam 2023 will be awarded the SMARTIES NFT version prize. This is a one-of-a-kind stamp designated for the winner.

Abbott, Casper, Coca-Cola, FE Credit, Grab, Heineken, Kimberly-Clark, L’Oréal, Marico, Nestlé Vietnam, Pharmacity, Samsung, Suntory PepsiCo, Viettel, Unilever, and others are among the judges for the Smarties Vietnam Award 2023.
This year, the organizing committee observed a growth of more than 133% in the number of campaign submissions from brands, marketers, media businesses, publishers, telecommunications firms, technology companies, and so on. The panel chose the top submissions to compete after two rounds of rigorous screening and review over a period of more than two months. The evaluation process is robust and open, ensuring that all submissions are treated fairly.
The jury proceeded to deliberate and assess throughout the two days of Jury Day after deciding on the nominee list to choose the Gold, Silver, and Bronze award winners for each category. All of the campaigns winning on the Gala night of MMA SMARTIES Vietnam 2023 have conquered a tough route and are worthy of recognition from not just experts but also the marketing community in general.
