Awards will be presented in 14 categories (see complete list of finalists), including PR Team Leader of the Year, Social Media Professional of the Year and Agency Leader of the Year. PR News will also celebrate this year’s inductees into its Hall of Fame: Harold Burson of Burson-Marsteller; Ellen East, Time Warner Cable; Ray Kotcher, Ketchum; Jack Martin, Hill+Knowlton Strategies; Howard J. Rubenstein, Rubenstein Associates, Inc.; and Gary Sheffer, General Electric.

The Dec. 10 PR People Awards luncheon kicks off three days of PR News events at the National Press Club. On Dec. 11 is the One-Day Boot Camp for Emerging PR Stars, and on Dec. 12 is PR News’ annual Media Relations Next Practices Conference.
