Whether you are part of a dynamic and innovative in-house communications team or a thriving young communicator, use your chance to showcase your successful projects and take part in our 2017 European Communication Award.

In-house communications teams from across Europe are invited to enter their innovative projects and apply for the title Communications Team of the Year in the categories “Company” and “Non-Profit Organisation”.

Submission is free of charge and our submission portal (http://eca.eacd-online.eu) will be open until 30 April 2017.

As Florence Ranson, member of the EACD board, states: “Behind every project, every good CEO, there is a good team. Entering the communication award is your chance of showcasing the great work of your team and its talent.”


Professionals aged 35 or under are also invited to submit projects in the category Young Communicator of the Year. By recognising innovative projects led by young professionals, the EACD actively contributes to shaping the future of the communications profession.
