About the awards
The Corporate Engagement Awards was launched in 2011 by Communicate magazine. The awards programme has grown to be the benchmark for collaborations that have excelled and push the boundaries.
The Corporate Engagement Awards honours three key areas – CSR programmes, corporate sponsorships and the communication strategies around those collaborations. The categories range from best CSR programme to raise brand awareness and best alignment of brand values through a sponsorship activity to best PR and external communications and best execution. The full category list can be found here.
More than ever, companies are striving to demonstrate the good in business and how an organisation can engage its partners, support charities and work for communities in which it operates. In turn, these activities showcase successful collaborations that raise brand awareness, and more importantly, build reputation.
Whether it's finding the perfect fit for a CSR project that promotes a social or environmental cause but also aligns two companies' brand values. Or, a creative sponsorship that engages with the target audience and does more than offer an expensive branding opportunity. We want to see your fantastic work put forward.
"Such a diverse audience and some really remarkable achievements. We felt proud to be part of the awards and it was a real journey of discovery for us - on both a business and personal level. A feel-good show in so many ways."

"The 2017 entries showed the shared value for organisations and society through some really great partnerships. I was so impressed with how corporates are working alongside charities beyond philanthropic activities – all partners bring something to the table to create amazing benefits that reach much further than working in isolation."
