HPRA Issues National Call for Entries for 2012 PRemio Awards


It’s industry awards season, and the Hispanic Public Relations Association (HPRA) is in search of the best public relations campaigns nationwide that target U.S. Hispanic audiences and leading professionals in the industry.

Entries for the coveted 2012 PRemio Campaign Awards are now being accepted through Friday, August 3 in 11 categories across multiple industries that highlight public relations work: Technology; Healthcare; Fashion & Beauty; Food & Beverage; Public Education; Sports; Media Event; Crisis Management; Integrated Marketing Communications; Non-Profit; and Digital Public Relations Programs (Social Media).  Winning campaigns receive national recognition and have the opportunity to be featured at Hispanicize 2013 to be held April 2013 in Miami, FL.  Award entry fees are $100 for members and $200 for non-members.

Awards entries are open to all public relations, advertising, marketing agencies, corporations, non-profit organizations and/or practitioners who practice in the United States, including Puerto Rico, and work on public relations/communications projects/campaigns that target Hispanic/Latino audiences throughout the nation.

Entries can be part of a multicultural or general market campaign, but must have a Hispanic component and will be judged only on that component by an unaffiliated panel of seasoned communications experts, from academia to industry pioneers.

In addition, HPRA is also accepting nominations to honor professionals in four industry categories: Journalist of the Year, Public Relations Professional of the Year, Young PR Professional of the Year, and Corporation of the Year. Nominations for the individual categories are currently being accepted through July 20, 2012.

Campaigns and professionals of the year awards will be presented at the 28th Annual PRemio Awards & Scholarship Gala, October 3 at Cicada in Los Angeles.
