The Building Public Trust Awards 2021

Building trust through open, fair and insightful reporting

About the awards

Established 18 years ago, our mission for BPTA is simple - it's to inspire business to build trust with the public. Our awards celebrate organisations which are leading the way in open and fair reporting and communications. The Building Public Trust Awards cover all parts of the economy and the issues that matter to society.

In light of the pandemic, we will not be holding a Building Public Trust Awards event this year, although we will be continuing the programme through a series of virtual workshops that are intended to help inspire, collaborate and showcase good reporting.

More information about our workshops can be found below.
