The award celebrates the achievements of senior PR practitioners and the value they bring to their organisations.

The prize is open to CIPR chartered practitioners, fellows and members of the CIPR who advise a board, MD or chairman (as a fellow board member, senior colleague or consultant), on reputational risk or other aspects of reputation management that have a significant impact on their organisation and its stakeholders.

Jay O’Connor, chartered director of the IoD, former president of the CIPR and a member of the prize judging panel, said: 'This prize recognises outstanding professional practice and the value that public relations practitioners bring to the organisations they support. We are also delighted that the CIPR and the IoD are working together to highlight the value of reputation, arguably one of the largest intangible assets of any organisation.'

The winner will be announced in June and awarded a £3,000 prize, a place on an IoD director development programme and a selection of IoD books.

Entries open on 20 April and close on 25 May.
