The Raleigh Public Relations Society is excited to launch a new, all-digital submission platform for the 2018 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Excellence in Communication. The award submission process will be more efficient, allowing for work to be saved, files as large as 50Mb to be uploaded, and deadline reminder notifications.
RPRS will recognize 38 award categories of campaigns and tactics, as well as PR Team of the Year and PR Pro of the Year. The Watt Huntley Lifetime Achievement Award, the society’s highest honor, will recognize an individual who has made lasting and meaningful contributions to public relations over the course of a career.
