2021 PRINZ Awards – Entries Now Open

Entries are now open for the 2021 PRINZ Awards – now celebrating 47 years of the public relations and communication management industry’s excellence in creativity, professionalism and progressive development.

Entries are welcomed until 4pm, Tuesday 23 February 2021 with late entries accepted until 4pm, Wednesday 3 March.

PRINZ Awards Chief Judge, Kate Woodruffe FPRINZ says that the 2021 PRINZ Awards will shine a light on the value and dedication that the profession demonstrated across various sectors throughout 2020.

“The PRINZ Awards provide an opportunity to spotlight the heroes behind the work that has made a positive impact to the communities that their organisations or clients serve. I expect our awards entries will showcase the industry’s outstanding strategic thinking and creative problem solving that have helped businesses and the public sector through the particularly challenging past twelve months.”

To ensure the PRINZ Awards remain robust, transparent and better reflect the breadth of work being done in the industry, new elements have been introduced to this year’s awards. This includes an expansion on categories, three-stage judging process, new submission platform and an extended submission period.
