Presenting the winners of the 2013 Nonprofit PR Awards

When we set out to build an awards program to spotlight the work of communicators working for public-service organizations we hoped that it would be as good as their for-profit peers.

PR Daily's first Nonprofit PR Awards have not disappointed!

From government agencies to professional associations, charitable organizations to academic institutions, international advocacy groups, charitable foundations, and the agencies that represent them, we received some incredible work!

The entries proved that the subject was no hindrance. These communicators have excelled in their field and are truly worthy of these honors.

To all those that entered, we thank you for being a part of the PR Daily community and look forward to seeing your entry next year.

It is our honor to announce the winners of the 2013 Nonprofit PR Awards!
