Receive the District-wide recognition you deserve!! The East Central District of the Public Relations Society of America is once again recognizing public relations brilliance in campaigns and tactics for its 41st annual Diamond Awards competition.  Within the East Central District, there are National-caliber campaigns and tactics that deserve recognition. The Diamond Awards are presented to public relations practitioners who have successfully addressed a communication challenge with exemplary skill, creativity and resourcefulness.

The Diamond Awards are open to any public relations professional who is a member of the 17 chapters of PRSA East Central District, AND any nonmember whose place of business is within the district’s boundaries. The East Central District covers the states of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

This year we are using an online entry program, Omni Contests, that will allow you to enter and pay for your entries completely online.  You can also start your entry at one time, then complete it at a later date.  Also, if your chapter uses the Omni Contest system, you can use your same user name and password from your chapter competition to enter the same award at the District level!

Speaking of which, take a moment to Save the Date below to ensure you’re planning accordingly (each deadline has a separate entry fee):

Extended Entry Deadline:  Monday, October 15, 2018

Now is an excellent time to begin reviewing your campaigns and tactics for submission. If you’ve already won at the chapter competition level, this is the perfect opportunity for the potential of additional professional recognition.  Remember that strategic, multifaceted public relations campaigns that exemplify the four-step process and meet specific goals are ideal for campaigns. A single project designed to accomplish a specific purpose that may be part of a larger campaign is perfect entries for tactics.

Start your planning now! We’re so looking forward to seeing all of the entries and winners this year. For more information, contact:
