Skimlinks is delighted to announce that The Commerce Awards for Publishers (CAPS) will take place in New York City on September 29 2022!
Now in its fifth year, the CAPS is the sole industry awards program dedicated to celebrating excellence in commerce content. This year there are nineteen categories carefully selected to recognize the work of publishers who have created engaging commerce content that supports their readers’ shopping journeys. Commerce continues to play an increasingly pivotal role in publishers’ revenue streams, and we’re proud to recognize valuable contributions to the space. Last year’s winners are available to view here.
This year, based on Publisher feedback and to reflect the current shifts in content, we have introduced four new awards categories: Best Special Occasion Article, Best Travel Article, Best Kids and Parenting Article, and Best Back to School Articles. The CAPS 2022 will also recognize highly anticipated traditional awards, such as Best Evergreen Article and Best Beauty Article.
Publishers are invited to self-submit for 15 of our 19 award categories. Skimlinks’ proprietary data will decide the remaining four awards.
The award submissions will be judged by a panel of industry experts from across the affiliate space. This year, we are delighted to welcome back:
