- SNCR Professional Awards â€” honours leading new communications thinkers, bloggers, journalists, citizen journalists and professional communicators
- SNCR Academic Awards â€” recognizes leading work/research/studies from students and academic institutions
- SNCR Business Awards â€” honours organizations that are successfully adopting new communications models and leveraging them in innovative ways for business purposes
