Inspiring Communicator Awards

CharityComms’ Inspiring Communicators Awards recognise and celebrate people who are inspirational communicators within or for their organisations.

They’re like an OBE for services not to the Empire, but to charity communications. They highlight those people who particularly demonstrate professionalism, expertise and above all are inspirational in their use of communications for a cause or charity.

About the Inspiring Communicator Awards

The Inspiring Communicator Awards recognise and celebrate people who are inspirational communicators within or for their organisations.

Our Awards highlight those people who particularly demonstrate professionalism, expertise and above all are inspirational in their use of communications for a cause or charity.

Who can be entered?

Anybody can be entered – colleague, employee, manager, volunteer, consultant/agency contact, even your CEO. The nominee doesn’t have to have ‘communications’ in their job title – just running through their veins. Remember: these awards are for individuals, we couldn’t accept entries for a full comms team or groups of colleagues.

What does it cost?

It’s free to nominate if you are an individual or organisational member or a corporate partner of CharityComms. Nominations are only accepted from CharityComms members. If you’re not sure if you or your organisation is a CharityComms member, or would like to join, please contact sarah.clarke@charitycomms.org.uk.

Nominees do not need to be a CharityComms member.

What are the criteria for winning an award?

At its most basic, the winners will be inspiring. The kind of criteria the judges will be looking at include:

  • Their professionalism and high standards
  • Their innovation and creativity
  • Their communications internally
  • Their communications with volunteers
  • Their dedication to their work
  • Their championing of the cause/charity externally
  • Their pioneering of new communications skills and knowledge
  • Their efforts to help others in the charity sector be better overall communicators
  • Their ability to make things happen

The more areas a person is inspiring in the better – but the judges will be looking for what shines through most strongly in the nominations.

How do I nominate someone?

Submissions for nominations will open shortly.
