Congratulations to the finalists. We have had a wonderful response to our first ever awards. We received an amazing number of entries and they were of a very high quality. Our judges, experienced industry professionals, have spent the past two weeks assessing the entries and today we are very pleased to announce the shortlist. The quality and number of entries show just how much the internal communication profession is growing and moving up the corporate agenda.
