ic-brill-button200x200The IC Brilliance Awards champions the vital role that Internal Communications plays in the success of any organisation. For many years these awards have been celebrating the outstanding contribution that innovatively designed and executed IC strategies makes. As a result, the winning of an IC Brilliance Award is an affirmation excellence amongst employees, colleagues and industry peers.

As we continue to celebrate excellence and innovation, we too strive to continually evolve and innovate.

We believe that those who enter the awards, and of course those who ultimately win the awards, are role models of excellence that inspire all of us to be the best that we can. Within their entries and out of their success there are lessons from which we can all learn.
