PR body seeking entries to new awards competition

A REPRESENTATIVE body for PR consultancies and in-house communications teams is launching for the first time an awards competition for members in Scotland.

And the awards ceremony, scheduled for Edinburgh on June 21 and being organised by the Public Relations Consultants Association, will comprise a full day – of not just awards being handed out, but training, exhibiting and networking too.

The DARE Awards judging panel is being co-chaired by executive director of the Telegraph Media Group, Lord Guy Black, and Huntsworth chief executive, Lord Peter Chadlington.

Ten categories are up for grabs and similar days have been scheduled for Leeds, Slough and Bristol.

The PRCA also includes PR freelancers and individuals among its members.
