Comms Council Awards Programmes
‘There are a lot of good ideas out there, ideas that make us stop and think. But the truly great ideas stop us in our tracks because of how they make us feel. They make us laugh, make us cry, make us jealous ...the best work provokes an emotional reaction from the audience. This year, Axis is celebrating the work that moves us, and in turn moves the industry forward.’ - Convener of Judges, Shane Bradnick. DOWNLOAD THE CATEGORIES AND RULES NOW
