The work of public relations typically happens behind the scenes, but at yesterday’s 2019 PR People Awards and Rising Stars 30 & Under Awards PRNEWS put the spotlight on the communicators behind some of the year’s most impactful work. While the awards honored individuals, many of the recipients emphasized the importance of their colleagues in their success throughout the year and in their careers.
Rising PR stars
Every December, in the midst of holiday celebration, PRNEWS hosts our annual PR People & Rising Stars awards. While we certainly consider all of our awards shows to be feel-good events, there’s something extra special about this one. Celebrating the actual people who make the campaigns run, put out the crisis fires and lead their teams to success, along with the rising stars under 30 who are coming up fast, takes on an added significance during this festive season of togetherness.
