DIA_logo.jpgThe shortlist for the Digital Impact Awards 2011 has been announced, as a record number of entries were whittled down by the judges of the UK’s leading programme to recognise, benchmark and celebrate excellence in digital stakeholder communications.

Now in its second year, the Digital Impact Awards is the biggest event of its kind in the UK, and provides nominees with a platform to discuss and commemorate the best of digital communications and online reputation and brand management.

Last year’s Grand Prix winner, Centrica, is again in a strong position, having made it onto the shortlist for three awards: Best corporate website, Best online annual report, and Best use of digital by sector.

Digital marketing and technology agency LBi top the nominated companies however, with four entries – each for separate companies – shortlisted.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 20 October at The Grange St Paul’s Hotel in London. To join the elite of the digital communications industry on the night, contact Liz Foggitt on 020 7498 7008 or
