PR News Announces Nonprofit PR Awards Finalists


While every PR professional has faced resource hardships during these challenging economic times, communicators working on behalf of nonprofit organizations—already accustomed to making much out of little—have been severely squeezed. This year’s PR News Nonprofit PR Awards finalists prove that compelling, innovative work is not defined by budget size. Honoring the resourcefulness and creativity of nonprofit communicators is what our annual Nonprofit PR Awards are all about. Below are the 2011 Nonprofit PR Awards finalists—we congratulate all of them. The winners will be announced at a luncheon event on May 18 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. For event information, visit prnewsonline.com. If you have any questions, please contact Mary-lou French at mfrench@accessintel.com.
