The awards continue to be a highlight of the year. They remain free to enter and are open to the entire industry, including non-Comms Council UK members.
Eli Katz, Chair of Comms Council UK said: “We’re delighted to be able to launch the awards under our new name. No year has been like the past twelve months for our industry and members of Comms Council UK have been at the forefront in supporting businesses through the pandemic, helping them work in different ways and enabling them to maintain effective communication channels that have kept businesses afloat. We can be proud of the support our members have be provided to UK plc. I look forward to the showcasing of both the success stories as well as the new innovative products and services that have been developed.”
