Every year The Awards for Excellence in Public Relations, organised by the PRCA and PRII, celebrate the very best of Irish PR & Communications work over the previous twelve months.
Our panel of Awards judges, headed up by Neasa Kane-Fine FPRII, have been working hard over the last few weeks, assessing what they tell us are an exceptional set of entries this year. Now, they have finished their deliberations, the votes have been cast and the 2020 shortlist is ALMOST ready for publication!
This year, the third-highest number of entries in the 27-year history of the Awards were submitted across 25 categories, by more organisations than ever before. The two new categories PRCA Agency of the Year and the Fennell Photography sponsored In-House Team of the Year were enthusiastically supported, while the Young Communications Professional of the Year* category, sponsored by Kantar, garnered a record number of entries – a sure sign that the future of the profession is in talented young hands.
We thank all our judges for their hard work and dedication over recent weeks and express our gratitude to Awards sponsors Fennell Photography, Kantar, Paragon and RuePoint Media.
THE SHORTLIST FOR THE 2020 AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN PUBLIC RELATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM 12 NOON, FRIDAY 8 MAY — PLEASE CHECK BACK THEN!
*The Young Communications Professional of the Year shortlist will be announced on Thursday 21 May.
