Polaris Awards is a global competition celebrating exceptional work in political and public sector communication.
Since 2017, the Awards has sought to identify the best use of communication techniques and technologies in election campaigns around the world. This year, with the addition of a brand new track, the Awards extends its scope to campaigns created for governmental and non-governmental organisations, recognizing excellence in strategic communication across the public sector.

For work that only involves audio recordings, translations must be uploaded as a separate PDF document. For work that involves video, translations should be included in the video files as subtitles. Subtitles should be clearly legible.
