#comms20unawards: who should win the lifetime achievement award?

There's not long left now until entries to our inaugural UnAwards close. But who should win the tasty Lifetime Achievement award?

by Darren Caveney

When we sat down and came up with a long list of potential UnAward categories we felt that a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award category should be in there somewhere. And when we whittled it down from our long list of 372, down to our final list of 14, we still felt it should be in there.

It’s maybe a slightly funny-sounding award title, and if you think about BAFTAs, OSCARs and such like they seem to go to people who have been around for hundreds of years.

That isn’t our intention with the UnAwards. You don’t need to be over a 100 to be nominated. We thought we should point that out.

So we want your nominations for people you think have done great things for ‘quite a long time’ in public sector comms and digital. It might be someone you work with, or it might be someone you’ve admired from afar.

I can think of many but I’ll not embarrass them here. You know who you are.

But who do you know who you think is worthy of a shout out for this category?

All you need to do is drop a name and short note on why you think the nomination stacks up to both Dan and I at Darren@comms2point0.co.uk and Dan@comms2point0.co.uk

We’ll sort the rest.

And then you the public decide.

This category is sponsored by the very fab Alive with Ideas. And they regularly tweet interesting and fun stuff at @alivewithideas.
