We know that a common complaint from comms folk, and others for that matter, is a lack of recognition for their work.

Whether it’s a brilliant campaign, managing communications through a crisis or just turning up every day of the year and being the best you can be it’s not a lot to ask to get the odd ‘well done’ or ‘thank you’.

But it doesn’t happen often enough and that is the ultimate reason behind the comms2point UnAwards 15. To shine a light on the colleagues proudly flying comms flags across the sectors.

Now there’s only one thing better than being shortlisted for an award and that’s being nominated by someone else for an award. It’s a special thing.  It means you’ve caught someone’s eye, demanded their attention or impressed them with your creativity, doggedness, enthusiasm and skills.

Know someone like that? Then why not nominate them in the UnAwards 15.

All you need to do is complete this dead easy entry form here.

Follow the instructions and share your Dropbox link with us and we’ll do the rest.

There are two categories to choose from:

-          Best comms/digital team

-          Lifetime achievement award

When we set up the UnAwards we were absolutely clear that they would be the most accessible industry awards around.  Where the community were actively involved in shaping and deciding.

So, best of all you, the comms community, gets to choose the winners through a public vote.

We’ll tell you more about that soon.


The closing date of 28 October is fast approaching. So get nominating who you believe to be the best comms/digital team around and the person you feel most deserves the lifetime achievement award. That’s quite an accolade so think carefully about who really should be in with a shout.


Want to soak up the atmosphere of the coolest comms, PR, marketing and digital event of the year in person? UnAwards tickets are priced at just £20 each – see, we told you they were really accessible. They are available on a first come, first served basis and will sell out so don’t hang around.  Book yours now here.

It’ll be a day of recognising and rewarding excellence and dedication. It will also be fun - we don’t do ‘stuffy’. After the ceremony we’ll watch a great film, and you’ll also have refreshments and a meal all courtesy of our fab partner, Musterpoint and our brilliant official sponsors Alive with Ideas and GovDelivery.
