OPEN FOR ENTRIES

Introduction

I’m delighted to invite you to participate in the PR Awards Asia to celebrate the region’s most outstanding, inspired, and successful campaigns, individuals, and companies in the communications industry. The PR Awards Asia, brought to you by Campaign and PRWeek, are now in their 22nd year. They are an opportunity to shine a spotlight on your brilliant work and celebrate your achievements with the leading communicators and agencies in Asia-Pacific. In our commitment to deliver an awards program that showcases the industry’s best and brightest, we are inviting entries from across the region that illustrate the finest strategies and achievements that have been transforming businesses and brands. There are several new categories introduced this year following feedback from the industry so please do take the time to review the entry kit carefully. The judging will be done by credible professionals from in-house ranks, as well as senior agency executives. The judges will ensure that entries are reviewed according to the demanding set of criteria. The PR Awards are an opportunity for celebrating those that redefine forward-thinking and steer the public relations industry ahead. If you believe you have a success story to share, this is your chance for recognition by the industry’s leading PR luminaries. We look forward to recognising the region’s top brands, PR professionals and consultancies, and celebrating work that’s truly world class!
