CovidComms Awards 2020

About

Location: Online

We have pressed pause on the CorpComms Awards for one year.

Instead, we want to celebrate excellence in communications during the pandemic.

We have launched the CovidComms Awards, a one-off online awards programme, which concentrates on the work that communicators have created during the pandemic crisis to keep stakeholders, from staff to local communities, informed.
