How Nominations will be Judged
“The nomination will need to detail the achievements of the nominee and demonstrate how these have advanced the profession of public relations and communication management and its positive visibility,” continues von Holdt.

“What the judges are looking for is someone who has made a significant contribution to the public relations profession – by making a contribution to the development of “best practices” in public relations and communication management; or has used public relations concepts and techniques to successfully solve problems or make the most of opportunities; has perhaps received awards and other forms of recognition the nominee has received for public relations and communication management accomplishments; and/or has given service to PRISA or other professional associations in this field: and/or service to the community.

Nominations close on the 13th March 2016.
