Awards Open in January 2021
By Donna O’Toole
Welcome to our first monthly newsletter of 2021!
Every month we like to highlight a selection of awards open and waiting to receive your winning award entries.
Now the year hasn’t begun quite how we had imagined with the pandemic still causing havoc across the world.
But we are pleased to report that awards are still going ahead this year, so you can still get the recognition you and your team deserve, and reap the benefits of winning awards.
Plus most awards are adding categories to reward business’ resilience, ability to pivot and the employees and teams doing the most for their customers during the pandemic.
The companies and brands who are able to rise up during times of crisis and who strategically market and shout about their brand will be the ones who ultimately thrive. These are the brands who are continuing to strengthen their name, reward their people, and drive forward into the new year with renewed purpose.
So what are you going to do in 2021?
… are you going to sit and wait for all of this to be over?
…or are you going to stop waiting and start winning?
If you are ready to start winning here are just a few awards open right now!
