Each year the EACD presents the Young Communicator of the Year Award in a gala ceremony held at the European Communication Summit.

Young Communicator of the Year

Millennials will comprise 75 percent of the global workforce by 2025 (source: Deloitte) and represent the next generation of innovative leaders and decision-makers. The European Communication Award presented by the European Association of Communication Directors (EACD) recognises rising stars who are delivering outstanding communications work on a European level. With this initiative, the EACD aims to attract, inspire and engage current and future communication leaders to drive excellence in our profession.

Talented communicators under the age of 35 can submit their innovative projects to apply for the title Young Communicator of the Year. The three young professionals who are shortlisted for the Young Communicator Award are invited to attend the European Communication Summit free of charge and will receive reimbursement for travel expenses.

Jury and voting

The award jury is comprised of EACD board members as well as regional and working group coordinators who will look at all submissions and narrow down the shortlist to three finalists.

European Communication Summit

The three finalists of the Young Communicator Award will be invited to join the European Communication Summit on 13 -14 June in Berlin. Here the nominees will have 4 minutes to pitch their projects in front of an experienced audience of in-house communicators before the voting portal goes live. The young communicator who receives the most votes will be honoured with the European Communication Award for Young Communicator of the Year.

Apply via our online portal by 11.59 pm on 30 April.
