The call for entries to the 1996 PR Week Awards goes out this week. And
this year sees some changes to the well established format.
The specialist awards section has been whittled down to seven key
categories under the heading of Craft Awards. And more emphasis has been
placed on the Campaign Awards with the addition of two new categories:
Financial PR, and Crisis Management.
Meanwhile the four top awards - PR Professional of the Year, In-house
Department of the Year, Consultancy of the Year and Campaign of the Year
- are re-designated as Gold Awards.
The shortlisting process has also been simplified with a maximum of five
entries from each category going through to the final round of judging.
The winners and commendations will then be decided from these finalists.
The names of all the finalists will appear in the finalists’ brochure,
on screen during the presentation, and in the ‘Book of the Night’.
Winners will receive trophies and certificates, commended entrants will
receive certificates of commendation, and finalists will receive

The PR Week Awards are open to individuals, in-house PR teams, and
consultancies. The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday, 26 July.
