#insidestory awards 2017

The #insidestory awards 2017 recognise and reward best practice in internal communication. The awards reflect the profession and reward your hard work.

CIPR Inside is a group within the chartered body of CIPR dedicated to internal communication and employee engagement. Our judging is rigorous and our awards are hard won. We have improved the entry process to make entering the awards more simple. The awards categories and the criteria have been reviewed and updated to give you clear guidance and ensure that robust standards are maintained. A team of experts is being invited to judge.

Every entry successfully submitted will be automatically entered into the Special Judges' award. This award recognises best practice, use of measurement and the results achieved for the budgets available.

This year there will be panel interviews for individual and team categories for those who make the shortlist. When you make the shortlist we want to meet you, talk to you and understand more about the work you have been doing and the difference it has made.

Being shortlisted is a great achievement.

Winning gives you the proof that your work is outstanding, and demonstrates to your leaders, clients and colleagues that you are among the best.
