Hispanic Campaign Awards and Professional of the Year Honored at 27th Annual PRemio Awards & Scholarship Gala, October 6, in Los Angeles, CA
It’s industry awards season, and the Hispanic Public Relations Association (HPRA), the leading non-profit organization founded to advance the careers of Hispanics in the field of communications, is in search for the best public relations campaigns nationwide that target U.S. Hispanic audiences and leading professionals in the industry.
Entries for the coveted PRemio Campaign Awards are now being accepted through Friday, August 12 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). Work must have been conducted between June 1, 2010 and June 1, 2011. 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 15, 2011.
Campaigns and professionals of the year awards will be presented at the 27th Annual PRemio Awards & Scholarship Gala, October 6 at the Conga Room in Los Angeles.
