The Communications category recognises exceptional performance by government communications teams to deliver a highly effective national or international communications campaign.
The shortlisted nominees are:
- The Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) Communications and Marketing Team with their ‘Our NHS’ Allied Health Professions and Nursing Recruitment Campaign
- Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) with their Vehicle Tax Evasion Campaign 2020

Miriam Wraight Head of Creative Content, Channels and Marketing at DHSC yesterday commented:
“Very proud that the DHSC Communications and Marketing team is shortlisted for the Communications category in this year’s Civil Service Awards.
Our Allied Health Professions and Nursing recruitment campaign was a real team effort, not only drawing on talents from our own communications, marketing and channels teams but across the whole health family.
Great contributions from NHS staff and Trusts across England, UCAS and HEE with a special thank you to our NHS colleagues in Leeds”.
Byron Lewis, Head of Communications for the DVLA yesterday commented:
“I am so pleased for the team here who worked incredibly hard on this campaign. We are all absolutely delighted to be shortlisted and we are very proud that the campaign has been recognised and takes its place alongside such high quality campaigns.”
Claire Pimm, Director of the National Resilience Comms hub, yesterday said:
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Civil Service Communication Award. Communications have been at the forefront of the government’s COVID-19 response, delivering crucial messages to help keep the public and businesses informed, and saving lives. By combining the very best of GCS skills and expertise in one place, we have been able to respond quickly to keep people informed, help them to understand new laws and guidance, and drive the right behaviours which have kept people safe in unprecedented times.”
Congratulations to the shortlisted teams.
