The shortlist for the 2017 CIPR Excellence Awards will be announced live on Facebook next Friday, 31 March.

Chairs of Judges, Paul Mylrea Found.Chart.PR, FCIPR, Director of Communications at University of Cambridge and Sandra Macleod FCIPR, will reveal the names of the entries shortlisted across twenty nine categories.

The broadcast from the CIPR's Facebook page will begin at 12:30pm and all award entrants will receive emails confirming whether or not they've been shortlisted later in the day.

More than 550 award entries from over 275 agencies, in-house teams and individuals were assessed by a panel of distinguished judges, marking the completion of the initial judging process.

All shortlisted entrants will be put through their paces in face-to-face interviews taking place during April and May at the CIPR's offices in Russell Square.
