Environmental Communications Award

ECA Logo

Communicating with the public at large and other constituents can be a complex and challenging issue. Communication and marketing plans must be designed to address the objectives and strategies of the campaign to reach a target audience.

With this in mind, in cooperation with the International Water Association and the PIA Awards, AAEES offered a new area of competition starting in 2012.

The criteria for judging the Environmental Communications Award:

  • Innovative approach to messaging or branding
  • Future value to the water engineering profession
  • Creativity and clarity in portraying and communicating the messages
  • Effectiveness in delivery and achieving desired outcomes
  • Integrated Design Approach - Narrative and visual elements work together to achieve the communication objectives.

This award is designed to recognize oustanding environmental communication efforts by industry; municipal, state and federal governments; and consulting firms to convey their important environmental messages to the public and other stakeholders. The winner of this award is automatically qualified to enter the International Water Association’s Project Innovation Award competition for Marketing and Communications-North American Category.
