The APACD Award, which recognise excellence from in-house communications teams and professionals, has announced the winners for its 2020 competition, the first since the organization relaunched earlier this year.
The Awards, which are administered by the Asia-Pacific Association of Communication Directors (APACD), focus specifically on in-house communicators, comprising three categories: In-House Communications Team of the Year, In-House Communications Professional of the Year and Young In-House Communications Professional of the Year.
The competition was judged by a jury of APACD Board members and local chapter chairs.
As the only Asia-Pacific awards scheme that focuses specifically on the in-house communications sector, the APACD Awards not only reflect the unique status enjoyed by the Asia-Pacific Association of Communication Directors (APACD), but also highlight the fundamental role that communications has played in a year of considerable flux.
“The APACD Awards are designed to recognise sustained excellence among in-house communications professionals and teams,” said APACD president Azmar Sukandar. “As the importance of the communications function is rapidly elevated by the remarkable times we live in, it’s critical that APACD benchmarks and celebrates the people and companies that are setting standards across our fast-changing region.”
