Announcing PR Daily’s 2017 Video & Visual Awards finalists

These creative communicators created the most innovative videos and visual designs.

We found the year’s best internal videos and designs, marketing videos, series and web designs. We’re excited to name the finalists of PR Daily’s 2017 Video & Visual Awards.

Our judges selected these finalists from more than 80 submissions to find the best visual content from around the world. Next, the judges will review this pool of finalists to name the category winners of PR Daily’s 2017 Video & Visual Awards. The Special Edition announcing all the winners will be released in late March.

The Ragan Communications staff congratulates all our finalists and wishes you the best of luck in the final round of judging.
