We have introduced the Future Leader category to put the spotlight on budding leaders, in the early years of their careers and about to step up to their next challenge.

We want to reward their work so far and help them to make that step, which is why we’ve created a new category to help them to do just that.

This award not only gives the winner the credibility but also the tools to achieve more with a choice of the PR Academy Communication Leadership and Management course worth £1,275 + vat, a learning and development bursary of £500 or a day’s professional coaching.

As well as the new award, we have added some extra benefits to the Clare Latham award ensuring this award continues to deliver what the profession needs and wants. We have also introduced a new judging element into both of these individual categories giving the entrants the chance to meet judges, show more of what they do and for the judges to delve deeper and ask questions.
