FRIDAY 5 JUL 2013 11:04 AM


The entry deadline for this year’s Digital Impact Awards has been extended to 11 July.

The Awards, which are Europe’s leading awards programme celebrating digital stakeholder engagement, are an opportunity for agencies, companies and staff to see their efforts recognised. Winning entries represent the benchmark in the digital communications field.

Communicate magazine’s publishing editor Andrew Thomas says, “Over the past year, there has hardly been a day go by when we have not had enquiries from both agencies keen to enter the next awards event or from companies keen to include shortlisted companies in their pitchlists. We are delighted that the awards programme has gained the credibility and momentum to help companies differentiate themselves and their work.”

Digital communications have come far since 2009. The mobile boom of the past two years has drastically altered the way digital comms is approached. This year, content is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. The Digital Impact Awards have evolved with the times and have recognised the best in European digital communications work since their inception and the 2013 Awards programme is slated to be the best yet.
