Testimonials from our 2016 judges

It's always exciting to see how communications is being used around the word - whether for business, advocacy, or stakeholder relations. Being a member of the PRWeek Awards Asia jury is quite fulfilling as it gives me a glimpse of the best case studies in Asia and a unique opportunity to learn from the best.

I was honoured to participate as a PRWeek Awards Asia judge because acknowledging and rewarding professional excellence is essential to building and maintaining high standards in our industry.  This is a great time to be a communications professional in Asia and I am pleased that PRWeek Asia is playing an important role in promoting public relations and public affairs in this region and in recognizing best industry practices.

Asia is quickly gaining momentum as the key driver for global business. The Asian communications industry has kept pace with market dynamics and now stands poised to lead the industry through dynamic social channels, mobile commerce, and technological innovations being invented here. During the past decade that I have served as a juror for PRWeek Awards Asia, I have witnessed our industry develop far beyond traditional public relations, into exciting multi-disciplinary work based on real insights and enacting real change. But in order to represent the future of our industry, PRWeek Awards Asia must attract and recognize the best-in-class creative and impactful work. As jurors, we are committed to advancing communications, but we can’t do that unless YOUR best work is entered. I stand alongside my other jurors in 2016, ready to be inspired by the most outstanding campaigns this region has to offer! 

Glenn Osaki

President, Asia



The PRWeek Awards Asia is the home for proper storytelling in Asia. If you are telling world class stories, than you should be part of this.

PRWeek Awards Asia continues to be one of the most important events in the industry, not only because it provides recognitions for outstanding PR campaigns, but also because it creates an environment for learning, exchange of ideas and promotes camaraderie among peers, thus spurring the industry to achieve even greater heights of success. Having been honoured with the opportunity to serve on the judging panel for several years now, I continue to find great enjoyment in the process involved.  Though serving as a judge has become increasingly tiring due to the rising number of entries, it remains a highly rewarding experience.
