What to win at the IMPACT AWARD

In addition to the fame and honour that the Impact Award bestows on the winners, we would like to reward you with four prizes that will only make your work even better. We have secured three great partners to support you in your content or social media work. UNO INO will offer a workshop that will be individually tailored to your needs. The prizes will be shared in conversation with the winners after the Impact Festival.

CONTENT SUPPORT by REBECCA ACAR

Depending on the specific needs of your company, you will receive either a content workshop or a content/text consultation. The workshop will provide the groundwork for your content marketing – such as defining the strategy for your corporate blog. In the consultation, existing content and texts are scrutinised to identify potential and eliminate weaknesses.
