Introduction

Atifa Silk

Managing Director
Campaign Asia Pacific

I’m delighted to invite you to participate in the 20th PR Awards Asia to celebrate the most outstanding, inspired and successful campaigns, individuals and companies in Asia-Pacific’s communications industry.

The PR Awards Asia, brought to you by PRWeek and Campaign, are an opportunity for you to shine the spotlight on your work and celebrate your achievements with the leading communicators and agencies in Asia-Pacific. Following feedback from the industry, we have introduced new categories into the 2021 awards to celebrate DE&I and campaigns on virtual platforms, as well as introduced the specialist consultancy of the year category. In addition, there is a new section unique to this year’s awards to recognise COVID-related work, including crisis management and internal comms, during the eligibility period.

In our commitment to delivering an awards programme that showcases the industry’s best and brightest, we are inviting entries from across the region that illustrate best strategies and achievements that have been transforming businesses and brands.

The judging, as always, will be led by leading professionals from the 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 for those that are defining thinking and driving the public relations industry forward. If you believe you have a success story to celebrate, this is your chance for recognition by the industry’s leading PR luminaries.

We look forward to another truly competitive year and uncovering work that is creative and inspirational.
