Best community initiative

The judges are looking for initiatives that support the communities in which organisations operate, or the wider society.

Best corporate website

A good corporate website should create business, reputation and stakeholder value for your organisation. The judges will consider both content and the experience. Great content should pull the reader into the site – not simply replicate printed materials – while a great experience will keep them there. Special attention will be paid to the three Ms: is it memorable? Is it motivating? Is it meaningful?
