PRWeek UK Awards 2021: Entry deadline nears

Time is running out to enter the PRWeek UK Awards 2021 - the most prestigious awards ceremony for the UK PR industry - at the standard rate.

The standard entry deadline for submissions is Thursday this week (20 May). Entries submitted after that date, but before the late deadline of Thursday 3 June, will incur a late fee per entry.

A new category added for 2021 is PRWeek's Young Game Changer of the Yearin association with MSL. It is aimed at individuals aged under 30 who are "progressive with their thinking across all aspects of their job", and are "always one step ahead and produce culturally relevant work in today’s society".

The live 2021 Awards event is scheduled for Wednesday 20 October. Our aim is to hold the event in person in London. However, due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, the final decision will be made nearer the time and we will communicate it via and our usual marketing channels.
