The finalists for PR Daily’s CSR awards

The quality of work benefitting causes and philanthropies is both impressive and inspiring, as evidenced by the finalists in PR Daily’s first-ever Corporate Social Responsibility Awards. 


According to rocker Tom Petty, the waiting is the hardest part.

At PR Daily’s awards department, it’s the judging that’s so hard.

That’s because with all our awards, the quality of entries makes it darn-near impossible to choose finalists and winners. The entrants to PR Daily’s first-ever Corporate Social Responsibility Awards kept this tradition alive.

The work that corporations, nonprofits, and PR agencies are turning out to benefit causes and philanthropies is both impressive and inspiring. But finalists and, eventually winners, must be chosen.

Thanks to everyone who submitted entries. And congratulations to the finalists.

Stay tuned to PR Daily for the announcement of the winners in the coming weeks.
