WWPR PR Woman of the Year nominations due at the end of August

Who inspires you in the field of public relations?  Now is the time to recognize her contributions!  Nominate your favorite public relations professional for WWPR’s Washington PR Woman of the Year Award.

For the 23rd year, Washington Women in Public Relations will honor an outstanding  professional as Washington PR Woman of the Year, this year on November 15 , 2012 at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Washington, DC.

The professional organization is now accepting nominations for this prestigious honor.  Last year, Fletcher Prince client Heathere Evans Keenan won the award.

There are many ways to support the event, including sponsorship packages.  In 2010, we donated a video production package and makeup kit for the raffle.  In 2008, I served as co-chair for the Mayflower Hotel awards event, and Fletcher Prince provided pro bono graphic design services and signed on as a Gold-level sponsor to support the event.

To be eligible for consideration as Washington PR Woman of the Year, nominees should live in the Washington, DC metropolitan area and have ten or more years of public relations work experience, with at least three of those years employed in the Washington, DC area.

The nomination requires submission of a resume; three examples of career accomplishments; a 500-word nominating essay;  description of memberships, certificates, and professional affiliations; list of awards received; and a description of community service and activities.

Nomination packets and instructions are available online at WWPR.org and are due no later than midnight, August 31, 2012.
