Event Awards

Our most hotly contested award from 2020 is back! Who will take home the prize this year for Best Virtual Event?

This award celebrates the very best in partnership and is open to any virtual event delivered by a Notified partner.

Best Internal Event:

From kick offs to town halls, the way we engage employees has transformed from stodgy emails to full blown virtual and hybrid experiences. For organizations of all sizes, engaging with their internal audience is critical, but must also surprise and delight. This award is for the best internal communications event delivered on a Notified platform.


Investor Relations Awards

Best Use of Video in an Earnings Call:

Showing transparency and putting a face on your leadership team is critical in Investor communications, especially in challenging times – making audio-only results presentations a thing of the past. This award recognizes excellence in the use of video to communicate financial results for publicly traded companies. Must be a quarterly earnings, half-year results, or full-year results webcast delivered by Notified to be eligible.

Most Informative & Engaging ESG Program:

There is more focus than ever on Environmental, Social, and Governance practices – making these a critical aspect of the information IROs must make available to their stakeholders. This award is given to the company with the most informative, engaging ESG program, as evidenced by the content and quality of information available publicly on their website. Must be an IR website client of Notified to be eligible.

Best IR Website Redesign:

As our virtual storefronts to the Investor community, the design of IR websites is critical. But too often this is a “set it and forget it” exercise as modern website design moves forward quickly. IROs on the cutting edge know that periodic redesigns are important to keep current. This award is for the best redesign of an Investor Relations website. Must be an IR website client of Notified, with a redesign project delivered in 2021 to be eligible.

Best IR Event:

Investor communications have moved online, with a wealth of technologies to recreate the roadshow experience. This award celebrates the best event (virtual or hybrid) delivered for an IR use case, including Investor Day, Shareholder Day, or other Investor Conferences (excluding Earnings or Results presentations). Must be a webcasting client of Notified, with a virtual investor event delivered in 2021.


Public Relations Awards

Best Public Relations Campaign:

This award is given to an outstanding multi-channel Public Relations campaign. Channels can include online, social, print, broadcast, podcast, or other media and the winning campaign should feature fantastic messaging, strong alignment across channels, and innovative tactics for generating earned media. Eligible campaigns will conclude in 2021 and must have leveraged at least one of Notified’s solutions such as our PR workflow platform, GlobeNewswire, or Insight & Analytics solutions.

Best Newsroom:

An effective Newsroom is much more than just press releases! It needs to grab that time-poor journalist and make them want to find out more, to balance great design and critical content. This award is given for the most effective, compelling, and informative Newsroom design. Eligible sites must be hosted by Notified.

Excellence in Crisis Communications:

It has been more than a year since the global pandemic began and we entered an era of extremely challenging communications. With a new crisis seemingly every day, PR professionals have excelled in blending transparency, information, and genuine care as they delivered the most difficult messages. This award celebrates excellence in Crisis Communications and is open to any Notified’s client leveraging at least one of our PR workflow platform, GlobeNewswire, Webhosting, or Webcasting solutions as part of their outreach.

Best Media Relations Program:

Media coverage has an enormous potential impact on organizational and business performance, making a strong media relations program an absolutely must-have. Driving positive influence on market- and mind-share, Media Relations is a pivotal part of any modern Public Relations program. This award celebrates outstanding media relations and is open to any Notified client leveraging one of our PR solutions.

Most Effective Use of Measurement in PR:

As social listening and media monitoring capabilities have become more robust, the need for strong measurement in PR has kept pace. Today, effective measurement of PR communications has become almost as important as the message being conveyed, and the challenge of PR professionals to find the right mix of goals and tools to drive results. This award recognizes excellence in PR measurement and is open to any Notified client leveraging one of our PR solutions.
