Message from the IPRA President: Awards, training and new cooperation July 2017

July is the month that the judges of IPRA’s Golden World Awards for Excellence (GWA) convene in a central location to determine that year’s winners. So, too, this year, when we came together in Belgrade, Serbia and reviewed, discussed and, eventually, judged the finalists in each category. Discretion stops me from enthusing about specific winners. On 13 October, all winners will be announced and celebrated at the annual IPRA GWA Gala. This will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria. A compelling city to visit, I can say from personal experience, and even more so now that you can join us there for a great and inspiring evening. All information about booking your Gala tickets will be posted shortly at
