Message from the IPRA President: The road to Barcelona July 2018

It’s just over 2 weeks ago that judges for the 2018 IPRA Golden World Awards convened in Brussels to determine this year’s winners. Like always the meeting, lasting all day, proved to be one of the highlights in the volunteer work these judges put in at IPRA. Settling down throughout the hours of evaluation of shortlisted entries in 37 categories, the judges held many spirited discussions on their individual merits. Whoever would have opportunity to wander around the clustered groups of judges would hear mention of trends and views of the application of current communication strategies. The entries come literally from around the world, representing in total 42 countries from the winners shortlist alone. Hence the assignments and challenges of the shortlisted entries vary widely. As do chosen solutions.

Middle East and Africa: growing in importance in IPRA’s Golden World Awards

After the first round of online judging for the 2018 IPRA Golden World Awards for Excellence (GWA), the world’s most prestigious PR awards scheme, 176 finalists are in the running to win awards. This year, the quality of entries is noticeably more consistent with succinct descriptions of objectives matched by creative solutions to PR issues.
 
“We have seen some superb finalists in 2018,” explains Bart de Vries, IPRA’s President and Chairman of the Jury. “There is a noticeably balancing of entries by region with growth especially in Middle East Africa compared to previous years. This reflects the GWA’s truly global scope. It was good also to see significant entries in our new categories of Sport and Influencer Management.”

As the chart shows, Middle East Africa has grown strongly in comparison to previous years as a percentage of finalists. Final judging takes place in July in Brussels, Belgium after which category winners will be made known. The Grand Prix 2018 and the Global Contribution Award will be announced at the Golden World Awards Gala in October.

Message from the IPRA President: Enlarging IPRA’s footprint March 2018

Over the last few years, IPRA has steadily enlarged its footprint across the globe by concluding several new cooperation agreements with regional or local PR organisations. At the start, the aim is to first establish shared vision,  interests and goals and, secondly, seek ways to further those goals. At the centre of this trend is the mission of IPRA and its Code of Conduct. The cooperation agreements allow us to apply positive influence on the way the public relations profession in a given region is conducted. Often one way to exert this influence is to discuss the Code during the talks preceding a cooperation agreement. An obvious benefit for a national PR association’s agreement with IPRA is direct access to IPRA’s Thought Leadership Essays which are distributed to IPRA members.
