The APACD Awards recognise and reward excellence among in-house communications professionals and teams. It is the only Asia-Pacific awards scheme that focuses specifically on the in-house communications sector, reflecting the unique status enjoyed by the Asia-Pacific Association of Communication Directors (APACD).
As Asia-Pacific Communications and Public Relations Directors, we represent an invaluable platform that facilitates the exchange of knowledge and helps to advance our profession. By establishing common quality standards and supporting professional qualification within the field, by organising conferences and meetings, and by providing services, analysis, and informative media, this non-partisan association works for the benefit of the Asia-Pacific communications and public affairs community.
Since our inception in 2014, APACD has has provided a voice to more than 400 communications and public affairs directors across the Asia-Pacific region. We organise regular conferences, seminars and networking sessions, while also benchmarking in-house performance through our awards programme and supporting professional development via training, mentoring and knowledge sharing.
APACD Awards judges are drawn from APACD Board members and chapter heads, while the unique judging process also requires finalists to present their case in a live judging session. APACD Awards winners will be unveiled during the organisation's AGM and Summit in September 2021.
Most awards competitions look for the same things—big, bold creative ideas; flawless execution; an impact on business results. We value those things too, but the APACD Awards judges will focus on specific areas as they review your entries:
Details of team structure and duties
Evidence and analysis of business objectives & team performance
Evidence of strategy & achievements
Evidence of campaigns/work that support the entry
Details of responsibilities and duties
Evidence of career progression & approach to work
A short testimonial from at least one senior executive
Please refer to the categories for the specific entry criteria.
In addition, there are some specific elements which we feel are common to excellence in in-house communications performance:
