Nonprofit Communications Awards
To advocate, build awareness or raise funds for important nonprofit causes, initiatives or organizations, communicators must deliver creative, engaging and compelling campaigns, projects and partnerships.
PR Daily’s Nonprofit Communications Awards will honor the communications efforts that told powerful stories, engaged and informed stakeholders, helped reach new audiences and led to success for nonprofit organizations, initiatives, causes or clients.
We accept submissions from academic institutions, charitable organizations, government agencies, hospitals and medical organizations, philanthropic foundations, professional associations, and the agencies that represent them.
Finalists will be recognized at an awards luncheon in September in New York City. Winners will be announced at this special industry event.
Enter PR Daily’s Nonprofit Communications Awards by the April 21 entry deadline to earn recognition for your influential nonprofit communications efforts.
