PIME 2016 Award for Communications Excellence

Every year, during the PIME (Public Materials Information Exchange) conference, a flagship event organised by the European Nuclear Society (ENS), the PIME Award for Communications Excellence is presented to the creator of what is judged to be the most effective, results-oriented communications campaign launched recently in the nuclear sector.

What’s so special about this award?

There is no shortage of awards being presented every day; some might say too many. But there is only one stand-out award that recognises excellence when it comes to communicating on the sensitive and specialised area that is nuclear energy - the PIME Award for Communications Excellence.

So, what is it that makes this award stand out from the crowd? What is its special added value? The answer is peer review. From a professional perspective there is nothing more satisfying than getting the recognition and praise of your fellow communicators, or knowing that your efforts have perhaps inspired them to find solutions to meet their communications challenges. It’s also about sharing with others.

Selling the concept

A jury of nuclear communications professionals assesses all the entries and a shortlist of the best ones is drawn up. These shortlisted campaigns are then presented, showcased and “sold” to PIME delegates during the conference. The delegates, your fellow communications professionals, then cast their votes and the winner is determined. The award is presented at the end of the conference.

Reaping the rewards

If you have achieved success with a recent communications campaign don’t keep it to yourself. Share it with others and send it to ENS. If it is shortlisted it will be centre stage during the 2016 PIME Conference, which is taking place in Bucharest, Romania, from 14 – 17 February 2016. 

If you know of another communications campaign that is worthy of being entered for the award, but perhaps its creator is too modest, please let us know and it can be assessed too along with all the other camapigns.

You could soon be the proud winner of the 2016 PIME Award for Communications Excellence.  It can also provide your organisation with the oxygen of publicity and inspire your fellow communicators around the world to achieve similar success!

Send in your campaign entry NOW and take part in the 2016 PIME Award for Communications Excellence.

MARK YOUR DIARY – Join us in Bucharest from 14 – 17 February 2016
