The Excellence Awards

The Latin American Excellence Awards were created to honour the most outstanding achievements of communications professionals in their field. In addition to this, the Awards also provide an excellent networking forum for all attendees and take a comprehensive look at communications achievements across Latin America.

The Awards are part of a global implementation of Excellence Awards, also rolled out in Africa, Asia-Pacific, North America and Europe.

The Latin American Excellence Awards recognise the best in the Latin American PR and communications community. By entering these awards you can:

  • Let your reputation flourish
  • Celebrate with your peers
  • Announce your success
  • Build your brand
  • Motivate your team
  • Discover your potential

The Awards are hosted by Communication Director, an internationally-focused magazine for corporate communications, PR and public affairs. Featuring opinion pieces, case studies and reports, Communication Director is a knowledge-sharing platform for communicators. Its articles are written by senior-level professionals at some of Europe’s largest companies and organisations, as well as prominent academics and thought leaders. As the partner publication of the European Association of Communication Directors, the largest network of in-house communicators working in Europe, the magazine was a natural choice to host the Awards and to honour outstanding communications accomplishments in Europe. Communication Director is part of the Quadriga portfolio.

What our customers say

It was a very pleasant surprise to receive this award, it was especially satisfying because of the top-notch jury; to be recognised by all these experts is the real achievement. Dinner at Sao Paulo was excellent and we couldn't be happier.
Estefanía Daza, Marketing & Communication, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
It was a good opportunity to connect with key professionals in the market and to know more about some valuable campaigns happening throughout Latin America.
Thiago Massari, Group Director, JeffreyGroup
The Brazilian and Latin American PR markets are still discovering the power and influence of the international awards such as the Latin American Excellence Awards. This also reflects a reality of local agencies that become each day more internationalized, joining global networks. In this sense, these two first of our own regional edition of the Excellence Awards have been establishing great opportunities for sharing expertise and reinforcing networks.
Thyago Mathias, Director, Llorente y Cuenca
