CORPORATE CONTENT AWARDS 2021 WINNERS ANNOUNCED

The winners of the fourth Corporate Content Awards have been announced today 30 June celebrating corporate storytelling and the use of narrative to communicate with audiences across owned, earned and bought media.

Cravenhill Publishing launched the Corporate Content Awards back in 2018, as companies were increasingly recognising the importance of narrative and storytelling techniques in corporate communications. This year’s winning entries demonstrated excellence in the strategy and delivery of corporate comms across a range of sectors, from NGOs to financial services.

Andrew Thomas, publishing editor of Communicate magazine and founder of the Corporate Content Awards, says, “The awards programme has grown in entries every year, and 2021 has been no different. The pandemic has meant companies have needed to make more tangible the relationships with their various stakeholders, and they have done this through the oldest method of communication – storytelling.”

The awards recognised the most innovative and impactful communications campaigns across a range of platforms including print, podcasts, video and corporate blogs, to name just a few. Slater and Gordon UK, Fresh Air Production and Markettiers were awarded ‘Best corporate storyteller’ for the emotive stories it told, while the ‘Grand Prix’ was given to Travers Smith and Living Group for powerful delivery of the featured stories.

“All of this year’s winners have achieved high standards of creative work and excellent results in the delivery of their content. We congratulate all of them for their commitment to achieving the best communications through the use of content,” adds Andrew Thomas.
