The Communications Council is a new organisation bringing together the AFA, AWARD and the Account Planning Group. It creates a footprint across the increasingly integrated world of creative, digital, healthcare, design, direct marketing, promotion, PR, plus creative production companies and strategic planning consultancies.
The Australian Effie Awards
Presented by the Council, The Australian Effie Awards honour the most significant achievement in advertising and marketing communications: effectiveness.
The annual awards are presented to recognise the year's most effective advertising and marketing communications campaigns – campaigns that have delivered superior results in meeting the objectives they were designed to achieve.
About the Communications Council
The Communications Council new body combines the strengths, expertise and knowledge of the three organisations. Based on the concept of ‘together stronger' it champions a proactive and united industry approach that faces up to the increasingly restrictive regulatory creep.
We help grow member businesses and develop individual careers through the provision of professional development services, advocacy and support.
Existing membership fees, both corporate and individual, remain in place across all three organisations. As the communications industry's not-for-profit peak body, the Council encompasses over 4,500 individuals from more than 200 agencies and consultancies.
