Shortlist announced for CIPR Excellence Awards 2013
The CIPR Excellence Awards 2013 is set to be hotly contested, with more than 160 entries in 28 categories on a shortlist revealed today.
The consultancies, in-house teams and individuals drawn from over 700 entries will now be put through their paces via a series of face-to-face interviews from a team of over 80 expert judges, before the winners are finally chosen and announced at the Excellence Awards black tie dinner at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Monday 3 June.
The awards dinner, now in its 29th year, is the most prestigious annual celebration of the public relations profession, with up to 900 guests attending from across the industry.
The judges have been hugely impressed by the high standard of entries, so congratulations to all of those who have made the shortlist in such a hotly contested year. My thanks go to all those who entered and I wish all of our shortlisted entrants the best of luck for the next round.
