The Excellence Awards have been celebrating the achievements of communication professionals for the past ten years and are a leading player in Europe. The Awards are hosted by Communication Director, an internationally-focused magazine for corporate communications, PR and public affairs. As these sectors have witnessed a rapid global development in recent years, the Excellence Awards in Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Africa and North America were launched in 2015, bringing the celebration to a global level. Each region has its own expert Jury who carefully selects the nominees and the winners for each of the specialised categories. The winners of the Excellence Awards are celebrated during a festive award show.
