Celebrating the best in the communications industry

Now entering its 19th year, the PRWeek Awards are firmly established as the communications industry's highest accolade. They celebrate the best of the best corporate, agency, nonprofit, and education teams, and the work they produced during the entry period. Only 39 trophies are awarded each year, so each one is truly special - and the competition to claim them is intense.

After entries are submitted, a panel of jurors will begin a thorough process that includes pre-scoring to select a top 10, subsequent deliberation, and the ultimate decisions of each winner and honorable mention. Jurors include senior PR professionals from agency, corporate, nonprofit, and government teams, as well as service company and PR education professionals. In addition, the panel of jurors will also include in-house marketing leaders. Jurors will be chosen because of their professional and wide-ranging level of expertise. Any juror who has a potential conflict of interest, including, but not restricted to, working for an agency that submitted that campaign and/or being involved with any aspect of the project, will not be allowed to judge that entry.

This year, all campaign and technique categories will be conducted as a "blind" judging where nominating organizations' names are withheld from the jurors. When submitting your written entry and supporting documents, you are asked to remove references to the organization being nominated. We recommend replacing any mention of your organization with 'Agency' or 'Company'.
