Digital communications is a necessity of any modern business. Excellence in the strategic development of corporate digital communications has been celebrated by the Digital Impact Awards since 2010. This year’s awards will be no different.

The Digital Impact Awards are now open for entry, with categories ranging from ‘Best use of online video’ to ‘Best digital employee communication.’ With the need to communicate more effectively with all audiences, digital is ever-more important to corporate communicators.

Entries will be judged by a panel of experts from companies including G4S, Microsoft, Oracle, Rolls-Royce, 10 Downing Street, HSBC, Barclays, Inmarsat and many more. Each entry will be examined to determine which organisations set the benchmark for excellence in digital communications.

The Digital Impact Awards will be open for entries until 19 June, but those entries received by 1 May receive a discounted rate. The winners will be announced at a celebration in September 2020.
