Another innovation in this year’s award is that two new categories have been introduced. The two categories are Public Sector Marketing and Marketing on a Shoestring budget. The public sector marketing Awards category is to recognize the effective use of marketing elements, and delivery of the marketing strategy and communications programmes executed for/by public sector institutions.
