unawards update: shortlist announced tuesday at 11.59pm

We thought the unawards would throw up some good stuff. We just didn't guess just how much good stuff. 

by Dan Slee, Darren Caveney and Emma Rodgers

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.

#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?

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.

by Dan Slee, Darren Caveney & Emma Rodgers

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.
