PIME AWARD 2007
As professional communicators we all know that
knowledge is power - once people are empowered with the facts
they can draw their own conclusions and form their own opinions.
How skilfully we connect with our audiences - providing them with
clear and easy-to-understand information, emphasising key messages,
conveying core values - determines how positively we are perceived.
The onus on professional communicators to deliver results is,
therefore, great - especially with the nuclear renaissance gathering
steam. But so too are the rewards that high impact communications
can bring in terms of promoting understanding, enhancing public
acceptance and fostering a positive image.
The 2007 PIME Award for Communications Excellence
aims to recognise the achievements of professional communicators
in the nuclear industry who have successfully connected with their
audiences, helped to dispel myths and misinformation about nuclear
energy and enhanced the image of our industry.
This year the PIME Award entrants will be required
to provide some basic information on the campaign they are entering
for the award: the campaign’s objectives, the communications
strategy adopted, the results that it achieved and why they think
it should receive the award. As always, as much supporting documentation
as possible should be sent it, like press articles, photos, DVDs,
newsletters, web pages or promotional materials.
This information will help the jury – which
will be made up of fellow communicators – to decide upon
the winning entry. The focus will be on campaigns that show the
most creative strategy, illustrative an innovative use of communications
tools and can show tangible results. Multi-media packages backed
up by sophisticated audiovisuals and glossy brochures can provide
impressive results, but so too can a campaign that ran on limited
resources. It’s all about grass roots, creative communications
that really reach out to their audience.
We hope that lots of nuclear communicators will take part in
this year’s award and that high impact communications will
receive the recognition that it deserves.
More details regarding the 2007 PIME Award for
Communications Excellence will be posted on the PIME
web pages of the ENS web site. So, keep your eyes peeled and
start preparing your entries now!
