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. Last 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.
Entries are judged by an international panel of political management experts including campaign managers, political consultants, communications professionals and academics. Awards are handed out based on the types of election and campaigns.
