PRSA 2022 Image Awards

 

The Central California Image Awards honor works of distinction in the practice of public relations by Central Valley professionals working in public relations, communications, marketing and advertising. Enter your best work from last year for an opportunity to earn recognition, raise your industry profile, enhance your brand recognition, celebrate your team's accomplishments, grow your business and become part of public relations history.

Awards are judged by public relations professionals from a PRSA chapter in another state. All entries are judged according to criteria set for that category and not against other entries. The awards cover program and project awards, as well as special awards including Executive of the Year, Professional of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

Submissions for this year's Image Awards are officially being accepted! 
 
Image Awards submissions can be entered via Dropbox. All entries must be uploaded by 11:59pm on April 4, 2022. Winners will be recognized during an in-person awards ceremony on May 18, 2022.

Submit Image Award entries via dropbox here. Submissions should include one entry form, one entry summary and up to five documents that support your entry (photos, brochures, videos).

Learn more about Image Awards, the categories, and how to submit here or download the Call for Entries packet here.
