Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted for his year's Excellence Awards. The CIPR Awards are recognised worldwide for the rigorous approach attached to the judging process and it is a real achievement to make it this far. The PR profession has excelled in supporting clients and organisations through the challenges of the last year so I was really pleased to see the “Best Covid Response” category receive a huge number of entries. It should be a particularly fascinating category to watch. I’m looking forward to welcoming you and celebrating the finalists at the online ceremony in the summer.
