The campaign or tactic on which you’ve worked so hard could be chosen as the most successful in Southern Arizona.

All public relations and communications professionals in Southern Arizona should enter.
What can I enter?

Who will judge?
Entries will be judged by a panel of public relations professionals from another PRSA chapter. Entrants will receive the judges’ evaluations. The judges’ form will follow a specific criteria noted under "Categories and Criteria." Decisions of the judges are final. If entries in a category do not meet the judges’ criteria for excellence, then no award will be made in that category.
Each year, the chapter seeks nominations for the Lifetime Achievement Award, Professional of the Year Award and the Outstanding New Practitioner Award. See IMPACT Special Awards submission information and nominate a colleague for the recognition they deserve.
