Nothing distinguishes your work and brings recognition to you and your team more than honors from the 2012 Impact Awards.
The Impact Awards recognizes the outstanding people, practices, programs and partnerships in Public Relations and Communications during the past twelve months. From Abbott to Zurich Financial, organizations large and small compete against peers of similar size, staff, and means to earn recognition for their organization's achievements.
Here's your chance to earn due recognition for your hard work in communications. As one of the the world's premiere strategic communications competitions, the Impact Awards provides a platform for communications professionals to demonstrate the value they're delivering to their organization.
Judged across a broad range of criteria, awards are presented across two tiers: winner and honors. Ratings are based upon an evaluation point system, which considers a number of factors measuring the effectiveness of communications materials.
In order to maintain equity during the evaluation process, materials are also classified and considered according to organization size and revenue. Further, individual honors are also being awarded to entrants participating in category-specific competitions.
