EVCOM Live Awards 2017 open for entry

Award ceremony on Friday 8 September will reward industry across 22 categories

This year’s EVCOM Live awards are now open for entry.

Judged by industry experts, the awards will see live events and services compete across 22 categories at the ceremony on Friday 8 September in London.

And a new structure means that gold winners of Live Awards in most categories will get a second shot at glory, free of charge, in the EVCOM Industry Awards, a new event celebrating the best in all integrated communications - live, digital and film.

EVCOM Board director Andrew Winterburn commented: “The EVCOM Live Awards go from strength to strength and this year offer more opportunity for the most talented agencies, in-house teams and suppliers to go for gold. This year’s winners get the added bonus of competing for an EVCOM Industry Award, a unique opportunity for recognition at the very highest level in corporate communication.”

The 2017 Live Awards celebrate events by industry sector and by content, with categories for in-house teams and for conferences both inside and outside the UK. Six categories recognise those supplying services to event planners, and Rising Star is for the people who will be the future of our industry.

The Grand Prix award will conclude the ceremony on Friday 8 September at the Lindley Hall in Westminster, judged by a panel of leading corporate brand managers.

The Agency of the Year award will feature in the EVCOM Industry Awards on Friday 17 November, details of which will be announced very shortly.
