Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to announce a whole new concept in the idea of comms awards.
Like you we've thought to ourselves about the good work that we've done that will go unheralded and that will never result in us having our picture taken next to a BBC Look North regional news presenter.
Sure, there's a place for the £200 to enter £100 a plate super award.
But we think it would be a good idea for the comms2point0 community - and that includes you - to come together to choose our own awards. So we can truly recognise some of the good work that's taking shape up and down the country that's taking place in sometimes challenging circumstances. The good work that's happening in PR teams in the public and private sector.
We've noticed the astounding feedback we get from the recipients of our blog of the month awards and we'd like to share some of that love. It may be a £1 a pop plastic trophy but it also represents the pinnacle of comms blogging.
We're calling them the Comms2point0 Unawards 2013 and we'd very much like your help in making this dream a reality.
We'd like you to help us come up awards categories. We are in the best traditions of web 2.0 going to crowdsource the award categories.
Here are a few ideas.
- Best Twitter account for an organisation.
- Best Campaign.
- Best New PR Company.
- Best Use of Elvis Presley in a YouTube Clip That Talks About Gritting.
- The Comms Team That Has Had To Cope With All Sorts But Is Still Smiling.
- Best Individual Piece of Social Media Content.
Tell us what you think.
We'll shape the categories in the coming days. You can do so in the comments box here, via Twitter at @comms2point0 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll keep you posted over how the awards will be chosen, the judging panel and how the awards will be presented.
