Atifa Silk

Brand Director

I’m delighted to invite you to participate in the 18th PR Awards, organised by Campaign to celebrate the most outstanding, inspired and successful campaigns, individuals and companies in Asia-Pacific’s communications industry.

The PR Awards 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.

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’s creative and inspirational.

Good luck!

The awards will be independently judged by a panel of leading senior PR practitioners from agency and in-house environments. A great care is taken in selecting a jury comprising the right balance of specialist knowledge, experience and objectivity. Strict guidelines are designed to eliminate vested interest or breaches of guidelines of entry.

Judges may move entries between categories if deemed to be unsuitable for the category entered, but appropriate for another. Category changes will be made solely at the discretion of the judges and their decisions will be final.
