This award rewards strategies that took an innovative approach to the kind of stories being told by an institution and the methods employed to tell them.

Pioneer Award

This award recognises a leader in the sector. A pioneer is someone who is breaking new ground in the type of content being created (substance and structure) or in the strategic approach to content within an institution (workflow, governance, collaboration).

The judges will also be looking for individuals or teams with a track record of championing the principles of content strategy in the education sector.
