winning at the unawards

The inaugural comms2point0 UnAwards were a brilliant opportunity to showcase and celebrate the outstanding comms and digital work which takes place up and down the UK. And whilst you are all winners to us, here is the official winners roll of honour...

Following an inbox-busting 202 entries from 150 organisations, our team of external, independent judges and comms industry experts had a fight on their hands to select the winners, But select they did.

And of course you played your part too in the public vote, which saw us receive almost 2,000 votes.

Social media was simply buzzing with UnAwards chat - in just seven days on Twitter the UnAwards reached 489k accounts with over 2.5m opportunities to see. Just statistcial outputs, of course, but impressive nonetheless.

Huge thanks to everyone who played a part and supported the Unawards. We're keen to get your views on whether we should run them again in 2015 so do get in touch.

Here's the full list of winners:

If we were American we would be saying right now that the lovely wonderful comms2point0 community are 'awesome.'

We may also be busy high fiving people and 'whooping' very loudly.

But then again the three of us have drunk an awful lot of coffee since the deadline to the comms2pint0 unawards passed on November 12.

Let's just say we were taken aback at the entries. There was the small total of 202 landing into our inboxes. That's 202. TWO HUNDRED AND TWO. We've spent around 50 hours reading, logging, grading and shortlisting.

announcing the comms2point0 unawards

We've been thinking for some time that we are in a rather privileged position in geting to see some of the very best comms and digital work being delivered across the sectors in the UK. So a while back we floated the idea of running some awards to highlight and celebrate the great things we know you do. There was a lot of interest. So, we got our shizzle together and organised some shiny new awards.

We're rather pleased to be able to announce the comms2point0 UnAwards 2014. And they are going to be held in the ultimate month for celebrations - December.

Now we don’t mean those awards that cost a fortune to enter, require tedious and overly complicated 1,000 word submissions and then see you spending a fortune on attending a formal awards bash. We mean something a little different. Actually, very different.
