[callout1] The Peer Awards celebrate successful innovative ideas.

Star entries are presented at virtual and real conferences and online so that they may influence the thinking of fellow professionals who also assess and judge them. The most outstanding ideas get nominated for our shortlist and the best go on to win a coveted Peer Award for Excellence.

Many feature in The Independent newspaper and at The Times website.[/callout1]

What’s in it for you
in under 100 words

Just being awarded a Star gets you exposure and recognition for your interesting CSR, Customer Engagement or HR initiatives.

Two things could then happen…
1. Your success acknowledged in the Peer Awards supplement in The Independent newspaper, at the Peer Awards microsite at The Times website, and at this website.
2. Yourself invited to present your initiative at a virtual conference and then possibly in person at our final conference, where you hear other finalists and help assess/judge the Peer Awards. Being declared a winner at the subsequent champagne afternoon tea Awards Ceremony would then just be a bonus.
