DIGITAL IMPACT AWARDS 2021 SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED

The judging panel of expert industry professionals have analysed the entries and identified those companies that went above and beyond in the development of its strategic digital communications this past year.

Having celebrated excellence in digital stakeholder engagement for over decade, the shortlist for the Digital Impact Awards 2021 recognises the latest evolution of innovation and creativity in digital communications across Europe.

The range of awards categories has ensured every angle of corporate digital communications is acknowledged, from specific deliverables and use of social media to individual audiences and sectors.

Following another challenging year for communicators through the pandemic, digital engagement became crucial for many businesses to connect with its internal and external stakeholders. Among the most competitive categories on this year’s shortlist is the ‘Best digital communications during covid-19’ award.

This year’s winners of the ‘Digital campaign of the year’, ‘Digital in-house team of the year’ and ‘Digital agency of the year’ will be announced at the awards ceremony on 25 November. The prestigious Grand Prix award, which last year went to Vodafone and We Are Tilt, will also be announced on the night.
