Message from the IPRA President: IPRA at the Eventiada Awards in Moscow November 2017

 On 15 and 16 November in Moscow, the premiere of the Eventiada IPRA Golden World Awards took place. Although the Eventiada Awards are in their 7th year, this occasion marked the start of a co-operation between the foremost Russian PR awards and IPRA. A new international category was introduced, requiring entries to conform largely to IPRA GWA standards, to be submitted in English and accompanied by a presentation to judges for final assessment.

IPRA President and the GWA

Last week in Sofia, Bulgaria, the 2016 BAPRA Awards were announced in front of an energised crowd of public relations professionals. The Bulgarian Public Relations Association recognises each year outstanding PR work in a range of categories. Having been a judge for BAPRA for over several years, I can attest to the quality of entries and the relevance of all the assignments they covered. But this year was more special to me than other years. In addition to speaking at the preceding BAPRA Conference, I also attended the award ceremony itself. Moreover, I was in the presence of no fewer than two previous IPRA Presidents, Christophe Ginisty and Maria Gergova-Bengtsson (whose agency United Partners, incidentally, won three awards).
