New Media is increasingly playing a key role in the messaging process of key players in business, government and at even private levels. What used to be an appurtenance is now a necessity for brands that care about how they are perceived. While the use of these tools and forms of communication have become the norm for the most forward-looking organizations, it has become crucial to celebrate those who are not only doing it well but doing it differently without losing their brand essence.
We believe that recognizing excellence in the use of new media and digital communications today will help raise the ante in the industry for the future. We will be looking forward to celebrating the various entries into the 30 award categories of Broad Awards but most importantly, we will be looking forward to celebrating our people, our culture and our advances in the art of corporate, public and private communication on new media and digital communications.
