From the awards founder and publisher of Communicate magazine, Andrew Thomas

“This is a really important awards programme for Communicate magazine. Increasingly the angle on stories we cover concerns the collation, the analysis and the visualisation of data and we wanted to celebrate and benchmark the excellent work we see in this space. It seemed a logical step, in this first year, to hold a morning conference before the awards lunch and provide an opportunity to really see what good looks like in the data communications space.”

All shortlisted organisations are invited to celebrate their work at a prestigious awards ceremony, taking place in Aril 2022 (London), where the winners will be announced and presented with a trophy.

The DataComms Awards will profile your organisation pre-awards ceremony, on the night and post event. This will include a media campaign to promote the winning work.
