We know that a common complaint from comms professionals is a lack of recognition for their work. The UnAwards19 is your chance to change that. In a big way.
by Darren Caveney
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 for many and that is one of the reasons behind the comms2point UnAwards - to shine a light on the professionals proudly flying comms, pr, marketing and digital flags across the sectors.
Now there’s only one thing better than being shortlisted for an award - 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 or skills.
Know someone like that? Then why not nominate them in the UnAwards19?
There are two ways in which you can nominate.
Option one - If you think an individual or a team should be in the running this year just complete this short online form and hit submit. I’ll do the rest and contact them on your behalf.
Option two - you can nominate an individual or a team in any of this year's categories and complete the entry form for them. You can do this in all categories with the exception of the best guest blog post category.
Three categories which really lend themselves to nominations are:
- Best comms/digital team
- Lifetime achievement UnAward
- Supporting health and wellbeing in communications (new to the UnAwards19)
For the Lifetime Achievement UnAward, all you need to do is complete the simple entry form here and email it through to email@example.com
Accessible is good, right?
When I set up the UnAwards six years ago it was with the very clear mission to make them the most accessible industry awards around. And where the community were actively involved in shaping and deciding some of the winners.
So, best of all you, the comms community, gets to choose the winners through a public vote in the first two categories above, as well as in the 'Guest post of the year' category.
I’ll tell you more about the public vote soon.
HOW LONG HAVE I GOT TO NOMINATE SOMEONE?
The closing date is 30 October (midnight) so get nominating.
P.S. the UnAwards deadline is never extended.
BE THERE ON THE DAY…
Want to soak up the atmosphere of the coolest comms, PR, marketing and digital event of the year in person? UnAwards tickets will be priced at just £20 + vat each. See, I told you the UnAwards were really accessible.
By the way… Tickets will be available soon on a first come, first served basis and will sell out so don’t hang around. Keep following the official comms2point0 channels for updates - @comms2point0, the UnAwards website, and sign up to the all-new comms2point0 eMag for the latest news on this.
