The Comms Business Awards judging concludes! See you on the 21st June!

Two weeks ago our independent judges were locked in a room for the day to decide the winners of the Comms Business Awards. Chaired by (non voting) Comms Business Editor Ian Hunter the debate got underway at the Institute of Directors on Wednesday 9th May. Ian had his referee whistle at the ready as our independent judges voted for who they thought were the deserved winners. Although agreement was found easily in some categories there were heated discussions in others. Our reader vote closed at 4pm on Friday and the finalists can be seen below.

The winning entries are under lock and key until the 21st June 2012 when the awards will be presented at the Lancaster Hotel, London. It should be a great evening for all involved, especially for the deserved winners! Below are our finalists! They have been listed in alphabetical order so this doesn’t bear any resemblance to the final order of winners.
