The EVCOM Clarion Awards are the leading awards for recognising best practice in communicating the importance of CSR, diversity, community development, ethical, health, education and welfare issues in the public, charity, social enterprise and corporate sectors.
The EVCOM Clarions make a unique contribution to both business and society, by identifying the role of the communicator in encouraging an ethical culture, and fostering higher levels of engagement with key social or environmental issues and there are 16 categories to choose from ranging from Advertising and Promotion through to Live Events. Free nominations are also welcome for the Champion’s Award which is presented to individuals, companies or agencies for outstanding contributions to the communication of CSR, diversity, sustainability, community development, ethical, health or welfare issues.
Marco Forgione, EVCOM CEO says, ‘The Clarions are recognised as the leading CSR, ethical & environmental communication awards. At a time when audiences are increasingly motivated by sustainable behaviours it is essential that organisations demonstrate a clear commitment to sustainability. The Clarions have helped set the agenda for the communication industries showcasing excellence in achievement. We have seen a dramatic increase in the range and breadth of organisations and projects winning these awards. It is clear that the Clarions are helping inform, educate and reward international CSR, ethical and environmental actions.’
