A huge congratulations to all of our shortlisted finalists and of course our winners. Some truly amazing work was submitted this year and that deserved to be celebrated!

From the editor

It would be an understatement to say that it has been a tough year for the events industry. But despite everything businesses and individuals have shown levels of resilience and innovation that deserve to be recognised.

The C&IT Awards are noted as the most prestigious awards in the industry and so we felt it only right that we continue to acknowledge the hard work of the last twelve months, regardless of the pandemic. There’s still been some incredible live, digital and hybrid events, so let’s celebrate them!

What can the C&IT Awards offer your business?

The C&IT Awards are here to celebrate, recognise and reward outstanding creative achievements across the industry.

As our industry evolves so do these Awards, so that whoever you are and whatever the project, there is a category for you and an accolade with your name on it.

Here's why the shortlist entered this year

Our Winners matter

The C&IT Awards are here to help make a real difference to your organisation. We want to provide your business with a competitive advantage when trying to secure clients or even prospective employees. In turn helping internally to create a feeling of pride and collaboration that boosts morale. It’s all about rewarding your achievements!


Entering will let your employees know you value their work, providing motivation, encouraging innovation and giving a clear goal for the team to work towards. If your work makes the shortlist or wins an award, that means the judges see it achieves the highest possible standard! Let the motivation and celebration begin!

Benchmark yourself

Entering encourages you to view your work from a different perspective and identify areas for improvement. The learnings are as valuable as the award itself. Celebrating the strengths in your events and showcasing exceptional work not only strengthens your business, but develops the industry as a whole.
