Who can enter?

Entries are open to all in-house, agency and freelance communicators -you don't have to be an Institute member but there's a discounted entry if you are.

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. But we do interpret 'internal' as any communication that builds a shared understanding or fosters a sense of community among a clearly defined group - so stakeholders, members of associations and in some cases, customers. What's important is that it's not marketing or external communication - not 'selling' an idea. 

The judging process

All entries are assessed by an experienced individual judge, who rates them according to clear criteria and writes a short critique of the work. They will select possible candidates for awards of excellence. Those choices will then be reviewed by a larger panel of judges, who will finalise the awards of excellence and select a class winner. Finally, a separate panel of senior practitioners selects the three Gold Winners who are deemed to the best of the best from all the strategy/campaign, digital and print classes.
