Platinum PR Awards Finalists Announced by PR News

Platinum

The role that PR and marketing professionals are asked to play is constantly expanding, requiring mastery over many aspects of communications—such as live video, measurement, data analysis, SEO and social listening—above and beyond traditional skills like crisis management and media relations.

This nonstop evolution in creativity and versatility will be celebrated at PR News' annual Platinum PR & Agency Elite Awards luncheon, which praises the best communications programs and teams of the past year.

To reflect today’s ever-changing skill set, we’ve added several new categories to this year’s awards to spotlight the top campaigns on Snapchat, Instagram and YouTube, as well as advances in content marketing, visual storytelling, digital communications and live streaming. We’ll announce the winners and honor all of the finalists for the 2017 Platinum PR Awards at our luncheon Sept. 14 at the Grand Hyatt in New York City.

We’ll also be inducting six campaigns into PR News’ Platinum Hall of Fame, which honors communications campaigns that can serve as sources of inspiration for years to come.

The 2017 Platinum PR Awards luncheon will be co-hosted by TV personality Ryan Serhant of Bravo's hit series “Million Dollar Listing.” Serhant, who has been featured on the series since its inaugural season in 2012, is more than just a real estate pro. In 2007, he landed the role of Evan Walsh on the soap opera “As the World Turns,” a character he played for two seasons. He also starred in Noah Baumbach’s 2014 feature film “While We’re Young” alongside Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried.

The winners of PR News' 2017 Agency Elite Awards will also be announced at the Sept. 14 luncheon in New York.
