New for 2015, the internal communications category was high scoring and hotly contested, with John Lewis 150 For All a worthy winner.

The live show, which kicked off with an Olympic-style opening ceremony featuring more than 400 Partners (employees), was staged at the LG Arena in Birmingham to celebrate the brand's 150th anniversary. Through a mix of storytelling drama, live performances, music from acts including Paloma Faith and videos, mcm created a truly memorable experience that educated and entertained John Lewis partners.

Judges were impressed by the use of technology to reach as many as possible - more than 25,000 John Lewis Partners in the audience, via satellite link to events in Edinburgh and London, and an online broadcast to stores and Partner homes. Digital engagement levels were high, with more than 4,000 texts and picture messages throughout the evening.
