For a communications professional, words are everything.
For your audience, though, the visual impact of your work is what matters most.
PR Daily’s 2018 Video & Visual Awards are back to recognize the most striking and strategic efforts to entice your audience.
We want to see how your videos and visual designs grabbed the attention of internal or external audiences. How did they tell your brand’s story in a new and refreshing way? Share how your video and visual designs made your organization’s campaigns and initiatives successful.
You know your work in special. Now it’s time to prove your expertise.
This year’s program offers more than 20 categories covering video attributes, design and much more. Enter multiple categories to increase your chances of winning.
