It's a tradition that goes back more than 50 years, and every year the PR NEWS "PR Professional of the Year" award competition poses a challenge - not for the lack of candidates but for having to choose the standouts in a PR universe full of exceptional executives. Our choice in 2002 was particularly difficult. From the post-9/11 challenges and the skepticism of the media in the wake of widespread corporate scandal, to slashed budgets and skittish management, PR has never encountered more daunting obstacles - or more promising opportunities. And, as many of our readers can attest, just handling day-to-day PR - without a major crisis to speak of - has become more rigorous. This year we honor an Agency Professional, Corporate Professional and Nonprofit Professional.
