PRWeek Awards are once again setting out to celebrate the most inspired and successful campaigns, companies and individuals in Asia-Pacific’s communications industry.

 

These awards, now in their 15th year, are unique in their efforts to shine the spotlight on the work, communicators and agencies in Asia-Pacific — those that are defining cutting-edge thinking and driving the public relations industry forward.

 

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.

 

Last year marked the expansion of the awards into regional markets through new Gold and Campaign categories that were designed to give campaigns and consultancies — big and small — in local markets an opportunity to shine on the regional stage.

 

This year, two categories have been split following feedback from juries and entrants: The Product Brand Development Campaign of the Year is now divided by product and service. In addition, Young PR Professional of the Year has been split into two: in-house practitioners and agency.

 

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.

 

If you believe your work has achieved real resonance and created a compelling relationship with consumers, this is your chance for appraisal by the industry’s leading PR luminaries.

 

We look forward to another truly competitive year and uncovering work that’s innovative and inspirational.

 

 

Good luck!

PRWeek Awards Asia continues to be one of the most important events in the industry, not only because it provides recognitions for outstanding PR campaigns, but also because it creates an environment for learning, exchange of ideas and promotes camaraderie among peers, thus spurring the industry to achieve even greater heights of success. Having been honoured with the opportunity to serve on the judging panel for several years now, I continue to find great enjoyment in the process involved.  Though serving as a judge has become increasingly tiring due to the rising number of entries, it remains a highly rewarding experience.
