CIPR PRide Awards 2013 open for entries
The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today announced its call for entries for this year’s 2013 CIPR PRide Awards. The deadline for entries is Monday 10 June, with late entries accepted until Monday 17 June.
Recognising the outstanding talents and achievements of public relations practitioners across the UK’s regions and nations, 2013 will mark the 10th anniversary of the CIPR PRide Awards, the most prestigious and rigorous awards of their kind.
In order to establish a commitment to professionalism and credibility amongst the regions, the CIPR has made the decision to take a best practice approach on the use of Advertising Value Equivalence (AVE) in award entries.
Bringing the CIPR PRide Awards in line with the CIPR’s national Excellence Awards, all entries which include AVEs will be awarded a score of zero for the esearch, planning, measurement and evaluation section of the judging, even if included alongside other valid measurement metrics.
The CIPR PRide Awards are undoubtedly one of the highlights of the UK public relations calendar. Recognising the best work from across the UK, these really are the most prestigious awards of their kind. I would encourage practitioners from across the UK, whether CIPR members or not, to enter the awards and give themselves the opportunity to showcase the tremendous work they have done to develop the standards and excellence within our industry.
