2020 Environmental Communications (EComm) Awards

Communicating with a diverse set of stakeholders, as well as the public at large, can be a complex and challenging task. Communication and marketing plans must be designed to address the objectives and strategies of a campaign's need to reach a target audience. With this in mind, AAEES is proud to offer this area of competition and invites consulting firms and municipal agencies alike to enter.

Completed entries for the EComm Awards Competition must be uploaded by March 1, 2020. You may submit the reservation form at any time, but it is advised that you do so early to ensure that you have sufficient time to review the instructions and test your secured drop box before the March 1st deadline.

For entry forms and guidelines, go to https://www.aaees.org/ecommcompetition/.
