The Public Service Communications 2020 Awards

The Public Service Communications Awards is a programme with a proud history of recognising the achievements of communicators across the public sector, staged jointly by LGcomms and the Government Communications Service (GCS). Each year, the awards celebrate teams and individuals who have delivered innovative and impactful communications, to support policy delivery at a national, regional and local level. 

This year, in responding to the coronavirus crisis, the public sector has demonstrated extraordinary commitment in the face of unprecedented challenges. Public sector communicators have been at the forefront of leading efforts to support and guide communities through the pandemic and we expect that these efforts will feature across all the awards categories.
