IPRA calls for entries for Golden World Awards

The IPRA Golden World Awards for Excellence, which recognises excellence in the field of public relations, has called for entries for its awards, which is in its 16th year. All the entries must be submitted by May 2, 2007. Companies, associations, private institutions, NGOs and government bodies anywhere in the world, which are into local, regional, national or international PR campaigns, are eligible for sending entries.

Speaking at the launch of the awards for this year, Philip Sheppard, President, IPRA, said, “I hope this year we will see some specific entries with an ethical dimension to resonate with the theme of the year, as well as witness record number of entries.”

An international panel of senior PR practitioners will judge entries submitted for the competition. Each entry will be assessed on the basis of its competence in five areas — a statement of the issue, research, planning, execution and evaluation. The judging itself will take place in two parts: a remote stage and a physical round. The remote stage will take place be via email in May and June, with the final judging to be held on July 6, 2007, in Paris. The awards will be presented to the winners during an International Gala on November 6, 2007, in London.

There are 25 categories in this year’s competition, including CSR, PR on a shoestring, and online press office. There are also two special awards: an award for outstanding creativity and the United Nations Award for public relations with a social purpose.

IPRA is the world’s only association for personal membership for senior PR practitioners. It offers a unique opportunity to its members to network with 1,000 top-level professionals from over 100 countries in the ever-evolving field of business and social communications.
