New this year, we’re introducing categories for COVID-19 and Diversity & Inclusion communications. We’ve also moved Social Media communications into the skills division.


Category 14-B: Covid-19 Response & Recovery Management And Communication

  • COVID-19-related programs targeted at external and/or internal audiences that address crisis, business continuity or issues or attitudes that have a significant impact on an organization, such as shuttering/re-opening businesses, furloughing/laying off staff, redesigning business operations

  • Programs may demonstrate both proactive planning and preventive action during the pandemic and/or show the actions taken to address trends, issues and interest group attitudes that have a major impact on an organization


Category 17: Diversity And Inclusion

  • Campaigns or programs of work aimed at building a culture of inclusion for an organization, with internal and/or external stakeholders

  • Entries must focus on the communication elements of D&I programs, which could include specific topic-based initiatives, special events or wider organizational strategies to advance D&I aims
