Brand Communicator, Nigeria’s most consistent brand and marketing communications magazine is set to host the 2021 Brandcom Awards on Friday, 19th November at the D’Podium Event Center, Ikeja, Lagos at 5 pm.
According to the organisers, the award in its third edition promises to be unforgettable as the stage is set to celebrate and honour brands, agencies, and notable individuals in the brands and marketing industry who are going the extra mile making impact in the industry.
The award is also designed to be the most credible and prestigious platform recognising, rewarding, and inspiring players in the marketing and communications industry in Nigeria.
According to Joshua Ajayi, convener of Brandcom Awards and publisher of Brand Communicator, those who will be unveiled as winners at the award have immensely contributed to the growth of the industry and truly deserve the award.
“Despite COVID-19, we were able to celebrate brands, agencies, and individuals at our last year’s award. Some notable players were able to innovate despite the times. This year despite the challenging and changing times this year some players continue to be outstanding and make an impact in the industry.
“We are also celebrating the giant stride at our award this year based on our mantra of Prestige, Integrity, and Credibility. The awardees were painstakingly assessed by a panel of assessors who judged based on our mantra. To date, Brandcom Awards is adjusted by industry players as a credible award platform amidst the falling integrity of some awards in recent times. We boldly say our awards remain credible and we won’t rest on our oars”
