The Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management (GA) is delighted to announce its finalists for the 2016 COMM PRIX Awards in the category PR Programs as the 2016 COMM PRIX Awards winner in the category Academic Case Studies.

Given the high quality of entries this year, the Judges had a challenging task. When reviewing entries, the judges evaluated how the PR efforts strengthened the stakeholder relationships of the sponsoring organizations. The Judging Committee thanks all entrants for the time, effort, and energy that goes into an award entry and acknowledges the contributions of their PR approaches.

As the judges now turn their attention to selecting the ultimate COMM PRIX winner, we wish all finalists the best of luck and congratulate the winner in the category Academic Case Studies. The supreme winner of COMM PRIX in the category PR Programs will be announced at the CPRS - GA Awards Gala Dinner held during the World Public Relations Forum, 29-31 May, in Toronto.
