PR professionals create online marketing campaigns, revamp websites, launch new blogs and create Facebook brand pages.
And that’s all in one day’s work.
It’s high time to give credit for digital PR creativity. Now there’s a way.
On Wednesday, Ragan Communications called for PR pros to test themselves against the best in the business through PR Daily’s Digital PR & Social Media Awards 2012.
The industry’s premier competition offers brands and individuals the chance to raise their profile, catch the attention of business prospects, and win bragging rights in 30 of the hottest areas of public relations today. The deadline is June 22, 2012.
“A new Gutenberg revolution is shaking up PR through social media, brand journalism, and other digital communications,” says Mark Ragan, CEO at Ragan Communications. “This contest gives us a chance to honor the leaders and pioneers—and have a lot of fun reading and judging the incredible range of creativity that’s out there.”
Categories range from Best Blog to Best Crisis Management, from Best Government Social Media Communications to Best Mobile App.
Judges include Kara Swisher, co-producer and co-host of The Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital; Tonya Garcia, editor of MediaBistro's PRNewser; Gini Dietrich, CEO of Arment Dietrich; and other leading media and industry professionals.
Winners will receive a free ticket to any of Ragan’s conferences in 2013, including Ragan’s popular Social Media Summit at Disney World. They will also be interviewed by PR Daily Publisher Mark Ragan at the NASDAQ studios off Times Square.
The top entries will be featured in PR Daily and Ragan.com, the two most-read news sites in PR and corporate communications, with a readership of 700,000 worldwide.
The person or team that takes away the Grand Prize PR Campaign of the Year Award will receive 5 free registrations to any of the two dozen major conferences in 2013. Winners can use the tickets themselves or give them to clients.
