Six shortlistings at Corporate & Financial Awards 2020


We are delighted to announce that Instinctif Partners has been shortlisted in six categories at the Corporate & Financial Awards 2020 for our work with clients Polymetal, Pantheon International Plc, McBride, UK Power Networks and UK Power Networks Services.

Our longstanding collaboration with FTSE100 listed Polymetal International, has yielded yet another award nomination this year, this time for Best Printed Report. Polymetal is a leading global gold producer and top five global silver producer, and its annual report reflects on a successful year and highlights the importance of exemplary governance, culture and engagement as a basis for consistently strong results and sustainable value creation.

Our creative team has also been recognised for their work with UK Power Networks, nominated for Best Printed ReportBest Online Report and, for UK Power Networks Services, Best Corporate Website. The annual report highlights the company’s role at the heart of the evolving energy landscape, facilitating the transition to a low-carbon economy and enabling stakeholders to benefit from consequent efficiencies. Together, our work demonstrates how UK Power Networks focuses on its responsibilities and customers’ core needs – safety, reliability and affordability – while innovating and investing in the low-carbon economy to deliver a sustainable energy future for all.

The team’s recent work with FTSE250 listed investment trust Pantheon International Plc has been shortlisted for Best Corporate Website: FTSE 250.  PIP’s new site, launched earlier this year, features a refreshed narrative and vibrant new design and brings the private-equity focussed trust’s investment proposition to the fore.

And last, but by no means least, our work for McBride Europe’s leading manufacturer and supplier of Private Label and Contract Manufactured products for the domestic household and professional cleaning/hygiene markets, has been recognised as one of the Best Corporate websites, in the AIM/small cap category. McBride’s new site articulates the company’s expertise in the sector, and more recently the role its team is playing in the fight against Covid-19.

Paul Owen, Managing Partner, commented, “We are very pleased that the awards panel has recognised the effectiveness of the communications that we have produced in partnership with our clients. Particularly in the current testing circumstances, we are very proud to have continued to raise creative and content standards and would like to congratulate our clients for these achievements.”

The Corporate & Financial Awards celebrate excellence in all aspects of City communication. They are currently particularly important, since never before have so many groups of stakeholders had access to corporate information or the ability to influence companies’ brands.

The Corporate & Financial Awards is a benchmark of companies’ communication with the City and its influencers. The awards programme celebrates and showcases excellence in financial communications and provides recognition for the efforts of staff, companies, agencies and beneficiaries. For companies trying to reach city audiences and influencers, corporate reporting and websites are primary means of communication. The Corporate & Financial Awards recognises excellence in these areas and in all aspects of corporate communications.

We extend our congratulations to all those shortlisted and we look forward to the awards ceremony in October, when the winners will be announced.
