It's not everyday that PR professionals get recognized for their hard work - some would argue they rarely get recognized. The Platinum PR Awards, now in its fifth year, continues
to shine the spotlight on the most outstanding PR initiatives of the year, lending further credence to the power of PR across the business and nonprofit spectrum. Following are the
list of finalists in this year's programs. The winners will be announced on October 18th at the annual Platinum PR Awards luncheon at the Grand Hyatt in New York City. We'd like to
thank the 800+ entrants in this year's program. Look for profiles of the winning campaigns in PR News' Platinum PR issue of Oct. 16.
