Impact Awards

CCC Impact Awards Article
April 11, 2011
Michelle Hicks, SPHR

Last year, for the first time in its nearly 20-year history, Capital City Communicators sponsored an awards competition. Designed to empower members and non-members alike to show off their talent and earn peer recognition for their accomplishments, the IMPACT Awards was well received by Boise’s communication professionals.

Why another awards event?

When the board considered how it could add value to communication professionals in Boise, we noticed a gap. Somewhere between public relations and marketing, there is a category of communicators without a lot of opportunity for local recognition—the business communicator. The IMPACT Awards creates new categories to make sure business communicators have a place to showcase their work—and we welcome the PR and marketing types, too.

On April 29, we invite you to join us for the 2011 IMPACT Awards Dinner. Even if you didn’t compete, you’re sure to be wowed by the smart thinking, creativity and innovation of this year’s winners. The event kicks off with a cocktail hour and music at 6 o’clock at the Esther Simplot Performing Arts Center. Dinner’s at 7, with the awards presentation following.

You can register at http://www.eventbrite.com/event/1460322865. Bring your boss. Grab a client. Get together with communication peers you haven’t seen in a while. Join us for the IMPACT Awards Dinner and see who is joining the club of Boise’s legendary communicators. It could be you!

Impact Awards

IMPACT Award Winning Projects
2010 IMPACT Award Winning Projects

By
Jeff Reynolds, Rizen Creative

Everybody loves winning an award. But for many of us, many of the traditional competitions aren’t really a good fit. Too often they are focused on pretty pictures with no regard to strategy or they are too limiting to allow for projects that defy categorization.

Capital City Communicators’ IMPACT Awards are different. With a wide range of categories and lots of flexibility in the entry process (just a simple form and whatever supporting info you want to provide), just about any type of communicator can enter.

Last year, my firm won IMPACT Awards for an annual report and an internal newsletter we created for clients. There was something in it for everybody: My team was thrilled to be recognized. My clients liked knowing they were getting “award-winning” work. And I really enjoyed the salmon served at the awards banquet.

Win. Win. And WIN.

Perhaps the most exciting part of the IMPACT Awards is the wide range of companies and individuals that enter. Freelancers, agencies, major corporations and small businesses were all represented. And among them, writers, PR specialists, project managers, filmmakers and graphic designers won for their great work.

There’s simple nothing else like the IMPACT Awards. I hope you’ll consider entering. As they say, you can’t win if you don’t play. And even if you don’t win, there’s always the salmon.
