Why do the FEIEA Grand Prix awards matter?
We spoke to Italian association, ASCAI’s president, Maurizio Incletolli. Here’s what he had to say: “We have always supported the FEIEA Grand Prix for two simple but fundamental reasons: #1 – at ASCAI we firmly believe that exchanging experiences is key to continuous professional improvement and this is one of the key benefits that participating in the FEIEA Grand Prix brings. Indeed by competing on a European basis, the awards become a showcase of the best communication experiences, which communicators can use in their day-to-day professional activity; #2 – this is probably the only pan-European award organized by internal communications professionals FOR internal communication professionals. Such a distinctive feature helps in making sure that the judgement for any project is actually the best a participant can possibly get by the appropriate expert in any given internal communication field.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

Useful entry tips – from FEIEA’s IC award judges
FEIEA’s European IC awards – what are the judges looking for – here’s what our Slovenian judges say: “A winning entry needs to be outstanding and innovative but also contribute to company’s objectives. One hit wonders can be tempting and attractive, but if they do not support an established tone of communication they are not bringing measurable results in the long run. ” Anja Potočnik, Specialist for Media and Internal Communications, SIJ Group, Slovenia. “I look out for the out of the box ideas that work for the intended audience and meet business goals. Most important though, is the effectiveness of the communication. An entry that presents evidence of measured effects is always more convincing.” Mateja Edelbaher, internal communications specialist, My Communication, Slovenia.
