NEW YORK (DEC. 10, 2018) – The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) announced today that entries are now open for its 2019 Silver and Bronze Anvil Awards. 

The Silver Anvils – known as the Oscars of the communications industry – celebrate the best strategic public relations programs of the year, providing entrants the chance to demonstrate campaign excellence and results, and to showcase their work. Silver Anvil award-winning campaigns have been featured in textbooks, taught in classrooms and are available on to guide and inspire both professionals and students.

The Bronze Anvils recognize outstanding public relations tactics, including the increasing influence of Paid, Earned, Shared and Owned media, which contribute to the success of comprehensive programs and campaigns.

In 2018, PRSA added new categories to both awards programs, including in the areas of content marketing, corporate social responsibility and technology/social media, to reflect the public relations industry’s rapid evolution, and to provide more opportunities for practitioners to be celebrated for the highest levels of professional performance. For 2019, the Bronze Anvils include a new category in the expanding area of influencer marketing.

“The Silver and Bronze Anvils are the most coveted and respected awards in the public relations community,” said 2018 PRSA National Chair Anthony D’Angelo, APR, Fellow PRSA, “In 2019 there will be more award opportunities, in more categories, than ever before. We are looking forward to seeing the outstanding, innovative work that communication professionals are producing throughout the industry.”
