Testimonials

"[Being shortlisted has been] Excellent for staff recognition internally at the agency and with the Governor's office. [We have been]  Able to publicly demonstrate out of the box government processes to the public."

- Awards Entrant, 2022

"There are three reasons why we're delighted to be shortlisted in this year's Gartner Communications Awards. First of all, the awards are independent and 100% merit-based. Additionally, just being shortlisted elevates our business to stand alongside household names. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, it's great to receive approval and recognition of our communications work from outside the narrow confines of our own market sector."

- Awards Entrant, 2022

"It was eye-opening to see such a wide range of submissions and what it takes to create an award-winning application. As a fellow communicator, it’s reassuring to know we’re all tackling the same challenges – regardless of industry, location or audience. I really appreciated the creativity and ingenuity of the submissions."

Kristen Nyenhuis,
Director of Communications,
2022 Judge

"It was fantastic to see the winning entries use communication and marketing to create a real business impact. I got great inspiration from the unique perspectives used in the entries."
