Nominations open for The 2015 Gold Standard Awards

Nominations are open for the 2015 Gold Standard Awards with entries invited across a diverse range of 16 categories.

Now in their seventh year, The PublicAffairsAsia Gold Standard Awards are unique in Asia Pacific: reaching across specialist consultancies, the private sector, NGOs and government agencies.

No single awards programme in Asia Pacific does more to recognise innovation and achievement in communications, corporate citizenship and public affairs – with this year featuring a new category of The Gold Standard Award for Employee Engagement.

Min Qin,Vice President of External Affairs and Communications with Fonterra Greater China and the 2015 Awards Chairman, said: “Over the next eight weeks we hope to secure a record number of entries across 16 categories ranging from stakeholder relations and digital communications to government affairs and NGO engagement. We also unveil a new category celebrating innovation in the increasingly important area of employee engagement.”

Entrants have until September 25 to complete the nomination forms, and then the hard work passes to this year’s judges: which number over 80 senior professionals from corporations, communications agencies, government, the media and NGOs.

Min Qin added: “I would like to thank all our judges, our sponsors and our partners for their support in moving the programme to this phase and I hope your organisation will be honoured in The 2015 Gold Standard Awards.”
