Entry forms were this week released for the James Maxwell Award, a prestigious accolade created to recognise and help young people in developing their career in the PR industry.
The award was created in memory of James Maxwell, who died earlier this year at the age of 46, and is open to students across the UK.
The award-winner will be able to take up one year’s work placement at Ketchum, where Maxwell worked for five years from 1996.
The creation of the award, which is open to students of any discipline, was first announced at last month’s PRWeek Awards.
Entry forms should be sent to PRWeek by 11 January 2004. A shortlist of candidates will be drawn up by the panel of judges in March, with the winner being informed by 30 April.
A presentation will be made to the award-winner at the PRWeek Awards 2004.
