CORPORATE & FINANCIAL AWARDS 2021 - THE SHORTLIST IS ANNOUNCED

The Corporate & Financial Awards 2021 shortlist has been announced, recognising the most innovative and impressive City communications with employees, investors and stakeholders over the past year.

This year has seen IR professionals, PR professionals and communicators really raise their game. Celebrating 10 years of excellence in corporate and financial communications, this awards programme is the only true benchmark of companies’ communication with the City and its influencers.

The Corporate & Financial Awards 2021 are dedicated to identifying brilliance across a range of areas, from ‘Best printed report,’ and ‘Best CSR/ESG report,’ to campaign and strategy specific awards including ‘Best M&A communications’ and ‘Best evaluation of a communications campaign.’

Andrew Thomas, founder of the Corporate & Financial Awards and publisher of Communicate magazine, says, “It is quite remarkable that this has been a record year for the Corporate & Financial Awards. It highlights the calibre of work coming from those who communicate with the City and those who influence the City.”

This year’s awards programme includes the first ‘Best corporate and financial communication during the Covid-19 pandemic’ award, to honour those British businesses that found innovative and impactful ways to communicate with the City.

The winners of the Corporate & Financial Awards 2021 will be announced at the awards ceremony in Central London on 23 September. To join the celebration reserve your table here.
