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.

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.

The Corporate Engagement Awards honours three key areas – CSR programmes, corporate sponsorships and the communication strategies around those collaborations. The full category list can be found here.

Whether it's finding the perfect fit for a CSR project that promotes an environmental cause 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.



“The consistent quality of entries was startling and humbling and highlights to me not only how impressively extensive meaningful engagement has become but also how to win one of these awards really does reflect a gold standard of impactful partnership.”

"It was a genuine honour to judge such innovative, creative partnerships, from organisations with a shared ambition to create lasting, positive change. Celebrating the winners and finalists on the night itself was a great way to round off the judging process. Thank you for inviting me to be involved!"
