Public Relation and Communications Awards That Should Be on Your Radar

Excellence deserves recognition—and formal awards are a powerful way to celebrate achievement and innovation in the PR and communications fields. And for brands and PR teams, awards are more than trophies: They’re valuable opportunities to gain recognition for outstanding work and bring positive attention to your brand. Nominees and winners can broadcast their achievements on social media or burnish their websites with a dedicated awards page to recognize and commemorate jobs well done.

Industry awards can impress your current clients and partners, make an impression on future prospects, and focus on the notable work your teams produce.

We’ve compiled a list of upcoming public relations and corporate communications awards now accepting nominations for individuals, agencies, organizations, and campaigns or strategies in public relations and communications.
