Summer internship at stake in CIPR competition

The CIPR has launched a competition that will see students battling it out to win a summer internship with one of five PR agencies.

The contest, badged ‘The Pitch’, is being run in association with FMCG and food PR agency Cirkle.

Entrants must chose either a consumer, corporate & financial, technology, crisis or charity PR, brief, and then submit a written summary answering the brief and outlining their pitch by 14 January 2008.

Finalists will then present their pitch, Dragons' Den style, to a panel of CIPR representatives at the CIPR’s headquarters on 25 and 26 February 2008.

Paul Roberts, CIPR assistant director-general and head of membership, said the contest would help to ensure ‘that tomorrow’s PR practitioners have the practical skills to back up their theoretical studies.’
