The prestigious Excellence in New Communications Awards program honors the work of corporations, nonprofits, governmental organizations, educational institutions, media organizations and individuals who are innovating the use of digital and social media, mobile media, collaborative technologies, virtual reality, and other emerging digital communications technologies to improve business, culture, media and society.
Awards are granted in six divisions: Academic, Corporate, Government, Media, Nonprofit/NGO, and Technology Innovation, and six categories: Innovation in Digital Experience; Communications, Communities and Collaboration; Mobile Experience; Social Data and Social Listening Projects; Storytelling; and Digital and Social Media for Social Good.
