PRISM Awards 2020 entries open
Entries for the annual PRISM Awards are officially open. The search for the best campaigns in public relations and communication is open to individuals, students, consultancies, companies, government organisations and NGOs.
This year will see the introduction of a number of new categories including Arts and Entertainment, Crisis Communication Online, Digital Media Relations, Food and Beverage, Gaming and Virtual Reality, International Campaign, Integration of Traditional and New Media and Influencer Management. Entries will be judged by experts in marketing, communication and public relations.
“The PRISMs continue to grow with each year and we have no doubt that 2020 will be even bigger. It is always exciting to see not just the amazing work produced by our industry but work that has made a significant difference in people’s lives. We’re hoping to also see some new names in 2020 and encourage small- and medium-sized and black-owned consultancies to enter.” says Palesa Madumo, PRISMs convenor.
To ensure meaningful inclusion of micro-consultancies, usually made up of 1–3 staff members in an agency, the event will award such small businesses in the category of New Emerging SMMEs, she says.
Entry submission will be online, once again making the 2020 entry and judging process more efficient for entrants and adjudicators, and the closing date for all entries is 7 February 2020. For more, go to www.prism-awards.co.za or www.prisa.co.za.
