The Corporate & Financial Awards has, since 2012, recognised that diverse mix of communications strategies, technologies and achievements that comprises stakeholder relations. The 2015 awards will honour excellence in communications with the City and its influencers.

Categories extend from ‘Best annual report’ in print and digital formats to ‘Best crisis communications’ and ‘Best communication with overseas investors and/or media.’

Work that excels in the programme is that which exhibits a cohesive strategy to carry out clear objectives that relate back to the overall business strategy. Past winners include Tata Consultancy Services for its successful public affairs campaign to gain the support of truculent French ministers during an acquisition, RLM Finsbury’s work for Travelodge on its internal and media relations campaign during a restructure and London Mining’s transparent and informative annual report geared toward raising brand awareness and increasing understanding.

BEST IN CITY COMMUNICATIONS TO BE HONOURED AT 2015 CORPORATE & FINANCIAL AWARDS 1The annual report has long been at the heart of communications with investors, analysts, the media and other stakeholders. It is the perennial centrepiece of stakeholder communications. And yet, corporate audiences have become increasingly diverse and technology has changed communications irreversibly. Thus, the annual report, an adaptable document in its own right, is no longer the fixed centre of the corporate communications universe.

Andrew Thomas, founder of Cravenhill Publishing said: “Effective communications requires the maintenance of dialogue with investors, analysts, business journalists and the wider stakeholder community. No longer are communications siloed, companies talk to all of these audiences with the same voice. The Corporate & Financial Awards is the only awards programme to effectively benchmark and reward excellence in this process.”

Entries are being accepted until 16 April 2015 with a £100 discount given to those entries received by 12 March. For more information, email Hannah Hodges or Annabelle Moore or call +44 (0)20 7498 7008.
