Icon Awards

Recognising talented internal communication professionals

Entries are open for 2017

In addition to our National Awards, IoIC also holds the ICon Awards. These awards celebrate talent, recognising the people who consistently turn theory into great internal communication practice.

Their purpose is to:
  • promote and reward individual talent
  • promote and reward IC effectiveness
  • demonstrate what best practice and excellence look like.
With increased pressure to do more with less in the workplace, it's all the more important that good work is acknowledged and encouraged through awards and recognition. 

Take this chance to commend a colleague - or enter yourself. 

There are nine  categories:
  • Best IC strategist/change maker
  • Best IC manager - corporate
  • Best IC manager - public/not for profit
  • Best editor - for work in any media or format
  • Best writer - for work in any media or format
  • Best designer - for work in any media or format
  • Best visual creator - video, photography, illustration
  • Best freelance/consultant/interim 
  • Rising talent award - best young communicator (30 years and under by 10 November 2017)
Internal Communicator of the Year
We're also looking to recognise an IC professional who has demonstrated excellence in internal comms for a minimum of two years; someone who is respected, talented and a role model. See the entry form for the details of what we're looking for.

Deadline for entries: 29 September 2017
