Awards were presented by Karl Ude-Martinez, an actor and Sky Sports Presenter and the event was sponsored by Engage for Success, HarknessKennett, PR Academy, Lansons Communications, Newsweaver, VMA group, Make it Media, and Yammer.

Congratulations to all of the winners and the highly commended entrants of our first ever #insidestory awards. We received an amazing number of entries and they were of an incredibly high standard. The judges, who were all experienced industry professionals, spent two weeks assessing the entries and last night we announced the winners. The competition was tough and that shows just how many brilliant campaigns and initiatives are being created for internal audiences, and how much internal communication is growing as a profession. We all celebrated with a host of entertainment last night at The Hospital Club and everyone had a great night.
