European Golden Link Awards Winners

Now in its third year, the European Golden Link Awards celebrate our network’s most innovative and exceptional affiliate campaigns, teams, and companies.

European Golden Link AwardsAfter a virtual event last year, we were excited to host this year’s ceremony in-person in the afternoon of DealMaker Europe. Hosted by the hilarious Cally Beaton, the ceremony proved to be an afternoon of celebration, entertainment and inspiration for all members of our European affiliate network.

Our 2022 awards had 10 categories spanning all areas of performance marketing as well as two new categories including the Social Impact Award and Best Managed Affiliate Programme for our self-managed clients. Nominations were open to all our European advertisers, publishers and agencies as well as our client services and network development teams.

This year, we had a record number of entries, and our esteemed panel of judges had their work cut out to select the winners. A huge thank you to our judges for supporting our awards:
