Event Details

Plan to join us as the Las Vegas Valley Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) honors the best and brightest PR practitioners in our area.

Awards are given in two broad categories: Campaigns and Tactics. PRSA will also honor a Newcomer of the Year, a PR Practitioner of the Year, a Senior PR Practitioner of the Year, and Volunteer of the year. On rare occasions, we will honor the best in our profession with the Roger Buehrer Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Ceremony

In 2020, the Awards Ceremony was held virtually on November 19, 2020 from 5-6:30 p.m. You can watch a recording of the ceremony on YouTube

Just like in other years, the winners will be announced live during the broadcast. Winners will not be announced in advance. We encourage everyone to pour a glass of wine or the beverage of your choice, order in dinner, watch the broadcast, and cheer on your fellow colleagues. 

Fees

To encourage you to consider submitting an entry, we’ve reduced entry fees. Also, there will be no fee to attend the event. Award certificates will be mailed to the submitter for distribution to your team.

New this year…to keep the cost of submitting an entry and participating in the Awards Ceremony low, the cost of the Obelisks will be passed along to the award winners. 

Obelisks for the Pinnacle Award winners will be offered at cost to each winner for an extended period, if they wish to order a trophy. We hope this will allow winners time to budget for their trophy order and also means submitters are not supplementing the cost of everyone else’s trophies. 

We realize this is a change from previous years. With so many of our colleagues who have been laid off, furloughed, budgets cut, among many other hardships, the board is hopeful these changes will help public relations professionals have the opportunity to participate in the awards program.

Sponsorship

We’re seeking sponsors to help make our evening special. There are in-kind sponsorships as well as paid sponsorships and advertising. Check out the sponsorship page to learn more.
