PR awards issue entries invite

A COMPETITION recognising the best of Scotland’s public relations industry has issued a call for entries.

The Scotland division of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations is inviting entries, and not just from CIPR members.

The awards ceremony is scheduled for December 6, with the deadline for entries set for the 11th of next month.

New categories making their debut this year in the annual awards include Best Sporting Campaign, Best Healthcare Campaign and Best Digital Campaign’.

Last year saw over 320 of the region’s leading public relations practitioners attend the annual awards ceremony, which took place in Glasgow. This year’s event is in Edinburgh.

CIPR has 732 members in Scotland. But these awards are open to non-members too.

In a statement issued by CIPR, Laura Sutherland, chair of CIPR Scotland, is quoted, as saying: “The CIPR PRide Awards continue to recognise the best work from across Scotland. Hundreds of entries are put through the CIPR’s rigorous judging process each year, and so securing a PRide Award is a real badge of honour.

“You do not have to be a CIPR member to enter an award, so it’s a chance for everyone working in the communications industry to show what they have achieved over the last year and help maintain Scotland’s position at the forefront of the industry.”
