Dear MACE member

You still have time – early bird entries close on 2 September 2022, and the final closing date for the 2022 MACE Excellence Awards is 30 September 2022!
This prestigious awards programme provides you with the opportunity to showcase your work and to get recognition from your peers.

It is a flagship programme of MACE that has been benchmarked against international programmes such as the Gold Quill Awards from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), and the Circle of Excellence Awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
Do not miss the opportunity to shine!
