Excellence in Communication

This category recognises a communication or public relations campaign produced in the 2020 calendar year.

It may be an example of how, through a communication strategy, one of the parties (council or community) shifted in their attitude or behaviour or achieved a special outcome.

These campaigns should be part of an overall strategy and could include the use of a number of communication tools such as:

  • Websites.
  • Community Surveys.
  • Social media.
  • Guide/information publications.
  • Special publications.
  • Newspaper inserts (i.e. newspaper space used and paid for by a council to communicate with its community).
  • Press/ radio/ TV coverage.
  • Community services directory.

Please note, individual publications should be entered into Reporting to Your Community Award.

All entries must be submitted online:

  • The submission is online.
  • Two photos no larger than 2MB each.
  • Attach examples of the campaign or special event print collateral.
  • Maximum of two support documents.

Entry is open to NSW councils and county councils who are members of LGNSW are eligible to enter.
