Recognition. It's a funny thing. Most of us don't chase it. But, in truth, we'd like a smidge of it every now and then...

We know that a common complaint from comms folk, and others for that matter, is a lack of recognition for their work.
Whether it’s a brilliant campaign, managing communications through a crisis or just turning up every day of the year and being the best you can be, it’s not a lot to ask to get the odd ‘well done’ or ‘thank you’.
But it doesn’t happen often enough for many and that is one of the reasons behind the comms2point UnAwards16 - to shine a light on the professionals proudly flying comms, pr and digital flags across the sectors.
Now there’s only one thing better than being shortlisted for an award - that’s being nominated by someone else for an award. It’s a special thing. It means you’ve caught someone’s eye, demanded their attention or impressed them with your creativity, doggedness, enthusiasm and skills.
Know someone like that? Then why not nominate them in the UnAwards16.
You can nominate an individual or a team in any of this year's categories. Two which really lend themselves to nominations are...
- Best comms/digital team
- Lifetime achievement award
When we set up the UnAwards we were absolutely clear that they would be the most accessible industry awards around. Where the community were actively involved in shaping and deciding.
So, best of all you, the comms community, gets to choose the winners through a public vote in these two categories, as well as our 'Post of the year' category.
We’ll tell you more about the public vote soon.
HOW LONG HAVE I GOT TO NOMINATE SOMEONE?
The closing date is 31 October so get nominating.
