New for 2013 there's one overall award for best communications, along with second, third and highly commended prizes.
• Does your branch produce a newsletter that addresses people's concerns in a clear, concise and jargon-free way?
• Is there a particular article or photo that has really grabbed people’s attention?
• Has your branch website been praised for being attractive and for keeping members up-to-date?
We're looking for a wide range of entries across the full range of communications, from e-communications to photographs.

Entries will need to be supported by a 150-word supporting statement.
The awards will be judged by our general secretary Mark Serwotka, national president Janice Godrich, PCS View’s editorial board and representatives from our headquarters’ communications department. They will be presented at the union's annual conference in May.
Please submit your entry on the attached application form to arrive no later than 5pm, 15 March, 2013.
