The DataComms Awards 2022 shortlist has been announced, celebrating the transformative power of data in communications, from how it influences corporate reputation to companies’ social media and PR strategy.

Data has become a fundamental part of modern communications as it influences the way communications are developed, implemented, and evaluated. Our expert panel of judges with experience across corporate communications, digital and data, have analysed the entries and identified the very best work.

The shortlisted entries are of an impressive calibre and span across a range of sectors and deliverables. The 'Grand Prix' will be revealed at the awards lunch and ceremony in Central London on 5 May.

Prior to the awards ceremony and lunch, Communicate magazine will host the DataComms conference, exploring best practice in the use of data in communications. Sessions will include case study analysis and panel discussions to examine the changing role of the corporate communicator and the ways in which data can be better integrated into a communications strategy.
