The CommsCon Awards 2016 shortlist was released this morning—and we made the cut!

Our #StandUp4Farmers campaign for NSW Farmers is running against the nation’s best to win Best Government Sponsored Campaign.

The campaign was also shortlisted in Public Affairs Asia’s Gold Standard Awards (in the Government Relations category) and in PRIA’s Golden Target Awards (across multiple categories) after winning the Digital and Social category in the state round.

Mumbrella, the popular industry rag that produces the awards, said today that the shortlist recognises the best in the public relations and communications industry.

Icon will join the other nominees in Sydney next month for the CommsCon conference and awards event.

The shortlisting continues a recent run of industry recognition that peaked at the feted Golden Target Awards, where we were thrilled to receive the GTA for 'Sustainability & Corporate Social Responsibility'.
