Your favorite awards program is back for another year. We’re excited to see what the heavy hitters in the industry have been working on since we last heard from you. Last year’s entries to Ragan’s PR Daily Awards were innovative and impressive. 2018’s program is all about pushing the envelope and getting your message to the right audience.
Share work that’s visually appealing, had mass or hyperlocal appeal and was unique to your brand.
We’ve kept the program’s most relevant categories, including last year’s addition—the campaigns by industry section. Submit your work to one or more categories to increase your chance of winning.
Prepare for your entry by checking out the 2017 PR Daily Award winners.
