PR News Announces Platinum PR Awards Finalists


If there’s one thing that’s certain about the state of public relations, it’s that uncertainty still reigns. But while the past year was marked by a slow economic recovery, things are looking up in 2011, as agencies are finding new business and hitting revenue targets, and great work continues to be created and executed, as demonstrated by our 2011 Platinum PR Awards finalists. PR News is proud to honor this work and the people behind it. Their efforts will be profiled in our annual Platinum Issue, and all finalists will be celebrated at our Platinum PR Awards luncheon at New York’s Grand Hyatt on Sept. 14, 2011 (click here for more information about the luncheon event). For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Diane Schwartz at dschwartz@accessintel.com.
