Winning a Corporate & Financial Award helps set organisations apart from their competitors and provides the opportunity to sustain their current clients, gain new business and engage internal teams. Putting your organisation forward for an award offers a chance to:

  • Receive external recognition - Leading experts in investor relations and corporate communications will decide winners through a scrupulous judging process. Entering is a great chance to reinforce your corporate reputation
  • Demonstrate the hard work of your internal teams - Celebrate the people in your company committed to delivering outstanding corporate reports and investor relations work. Applaud those setting the standard for excellence
  • Acknowledge the areas you could improve - Entering the awards is an opportunity to recognise the communications strategies that you could work on in the future


All shortlisted organisations are invited to celebrate their work at a prestigious awards ceremony, taking place in London where the winners will be announced and presented with a trophy.
