To Enter

Please note that the key to success in any awards scheme is to set out clearly defined objectives and then provide evidence as to whether these were achieved. Engagement is the key metric now rather than the numbers of followers or Likes. With the exception of the best brand account, best websites (corporate and consumer) and best blog categories, the work submitted for judging must have been launched between 1 March 2016 and 30 April 2017. 

1. Complete the entry form online

Complete one form per entry, even if the same scheme is being entered in several categories. Please note: each entry incurs a separate fee, even if it is the same campaign being entered into multiple categories.

2. Executive summary: 500 words max

Summarise your campaign. This must be kept to 500 words. Some of the best campaigns we have seen in the past have been those with concise summaries which highlight their achievements.

It is advisable to include information under the following headings where relevant:

  • Objective / brief
  • Target audience
  • Strategy
  • Creativity / originality 
  • Implementation methods 
  • Definition and measurement of success
  • Outcome
  • Budget
    • Below £10,000
    • £10,000 - £25,000
    • £25,001 - £50,000
    • £50,001 - £75,000
    • £75,001 - £100,000
    • Over £100,001

Please note: the executive summary is the only part of an entry that the judges will view prior to the judging session.

3. Compile your supporting material 

Supporting material will be made available to the judges when they first meet. It should provide them with a better understanding of the entry, enabling them to appraise its winning credentials. 

Examples include: media coverage; data such as unique visitor numbers or retweets; media evaluation; sales figures; market share figures; links to relevant online materials.

We would prefer to receive links to video content rather than video files, as this avoids any issues with compatibility. Time is limited on judging day, so please indicate the best three minutes for viewing.

 4. Submit your entry

This submission acknowledges acceptance of the rules of entry. The entrant declares that the submission fits the eligibility requirements and all facts and figures provided are accurate to the best of their knowledge. To withdraw an entry, contact Hardy Media on 020 7359 3321 or enquiries@corpcommsmagazine.co.uk before 16/06/2017.

Please note, refunds are not available on entry fees. By submitting this form, you have agreed to pay the corresponding fee.
