IPRA Launches new UN-related webpage to celebrate UN Day 2017


Tuesday 24 October 2017, is UN Day which marks the entry into force in 1945 of the United Nations Charter. For IPRA, as a registered NGO within the UN family, this is the occasion for us to draw attention to the work of the UN.

IPRA is committed to support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (the SDGs) of the UN. We do so through the active and direct involvement of IPRA board members, our liaison member in New York and such opportunities as the IPRA Global Contribution Award, a special prize within the Golden World Awards for Excellence in PR.

And to mark the day IPRA is proud to announce a renewed webpage on its website consolidating our UN-related efforts https://www.ipra.org/news/ipra-and-the-un/

Communication is a crucial asset in the furthering of the SDGs and IPRA will continue to lend our best efforts to help that along.

IPRA is the organiser of the annual Golden World Awards for excellence – PR's global awards scheme.  With 60 years of experience, IPRA, recognised by the United Nations, is now present throughout the world wherever public relations are practised. IPRA welcomes all those within the profession who share its aim and who wish to be part of the IPRA worldwide fellowship. For more information please visit: www.ipra.org   

Background to the Golden World Awards for Excellence.

The annual IPRA Golden World Awards (GWA) initiative, established in 1990, recognizes excellence in public relations practice worldwide in a variety of categories. Recipients of the award take particular pride in the recognition granted to their entry as meeting international standards of excellence in public relations. An overall IPRA Grand Prix for Excellence is presented each year to the entry judged as representing the highest standards that year. While there are many national and regional PR awards, there is only one truly global scheme: the GWA.
