Starting January 15, 2015, qualified nominators may submit their respective nominations for this year’s global Communication for Future Davos Award (C4F Davos Award).

This prestigious award recognizes outstanding experts with strong influence on the improvement of communications and with truly effective contribution in fostering new trends for the development of the communication industry worldwide.
‘It is the first global award in communications given to personalities rather than agencies or cases. We are proud to have had nominees and winners from Germany, Italy, India, China, USA, Poland and other countries last year and we look forward to welcome this year’s nominees’, comments Irina Zolotarevych, C4F Davos Awards Director, WCFDavos Committee member, CEO of Pleon Talan (Ketchum).
Yanina Dubeykovskaya, Chair of WCFDavos Coordination Committee, adds: ‘Our key mission is to form the guidelines for the communication industry, to support professionals who managed to break-through and foresee the next step in the development of transparency and connectivity. We believe that nowadays communication is the main driver of global changes’.
During the next four weeks, the national associations and awards’ organizing committees will be able to propose candidates. Our partners include the top names in the national communication awards like The Silver Archer (Russia), BAPRA Bright Awards (Bulgaria), and many others. Additionally, members of C4F Davos Awards Board, WCFDavos Board members, as well as former winners of the C4F Davos Awards can nominate candidates.
