“The SEMrush Australian Search Awards set out to shine a light on the amazing work and outstanding content produced by the very talented digital marketing community in Australia. We have been overwhelmed by the extraordinary quality of the entries this year and we look forward to finding out who the winners are. We’re planning a few surprises to make the ceremony even more memorable and are looking forward to another amazing event hosted by David Campbell,” said Olga Andrienko, Head of Global Marketing at SEMrush.
