Winning Marketing, PR and Communications Awards

The Marketing, PR and Communications industries are extremely competitive. Agencies are in fierce competition to win new clients and contracts, and the best way to differentiate yourself from your competitors and stand out from the crowd is to win awards for your services.

You have to be innovative, creative and on-trend to stay in front of the competition. And what better way to prove that you are the best, than having an award to show for your amazing work?

Why should I enter awards?

There are many great reasons to enter awards, the most poignant being award-winning companies are 63% more profitable than their non-award-winning competitors. Winning awards are also a great way to build team morale and recognise and reward your team for all their hard work.

So if your business has a fantastic team, has completed a great project or is excelling in your sector, then you need to be entering awards and getting recognition for the fantastic work you are doing.

Entering awards requires time and attention to detail, so having an awards strategy can often be a great place to start. Knowing when a deadline is and what you need to meet the criteria can make entering an award easier and smoother.
