SPOTLIGHTING THE MOST INNOVATIVE PR & COMMUNICATIONS FIRMS OF THE YEAR

ALL FIRMS ARE INVITED TO APPLY, FREE OF CHARGE. NOMINATION DEADLINE: JULY 15.

PRNEWS’ Agency Elite Top 100 is the industry’s only editorial roster of the top 100 PR and Communications agencies. And you’re invited to be a part of it… for free.

The coveted list is designed to demonstrate the wide range of industry specializations and core capabilities that public relations encompass. Our editors will comb the applications and profile the top 100 agencies across multiple segments and channels. The final results will paint a quick picture of each one’s core competencies and recent campaigns.

In September, we’ll present the collective as the 2023 AGENCY ELITE TOP 100 via a searchable portal anchored to PRNEWS, giving brand-side marketers an effective and efficient tool to narrow the search for their next agency partner. The List garners more than 50,000 client-side visits annually. View the 2022 list here.
