Cost to Enter

Who can enter?
Entries are open to all in-house, agency and freelance communicators across the World – you don’t have to be an Institute member but there's a discounted entry fee if you are.

To join and take advantage of this discount visit: www.ioic.org.uk/join-online and quote discount code ‘ioicawards’ to waive the £60.00 joining fee.

What can be entered?
We’re the Institute of Internal Communication so work that’s primarily meant for an internal audience is what we’re looking for. What’s important is that it’s not marketing or external communication – not ‘selling’ an idea. Work must have been produced between 1 January to 31 December 2021 (unless otherwise stated).

How much does it cost to enter?

Enter 3 times (this must be under the same company name, submitted at the same time, but doesn’t need to be for the same work) and we will discount all entries by 10%.
