“COVID-19 has made us realize that the future will not be not as comfortable as the past - for us, for our clients, for our industry and for our communities. The role of the PR profession has been redefined across borders and board rooms, in the society and within the new media channels.
Today our work needs to address not only the strategic issues and values of the organization and the brand we are responsible for, but to ensure communications is based on truth, greater purpose, relevance and ethics.
The long term relationship between IPRA and the UN, as well as UN's Sustainable Development Goals, provide the perfect framework for the PR practitioners to work differently and to respond better to the new realities. We are very happy that Eventiada IPRA GWA, the largest communications award programme in the region, is part of this process”.
Eventiada IPRA GWA President, Orta Communications Group General Director
“Eventiada IPRA GWA has been growing very actively, just last year 13 countries of Eastern Europe, CIS and Central Asia joined our competition for excellence in communications. This year we are so happy to present updated categories, with more corporate, social and public sector awards.
We are also delighted to join IPRA in support of sustainable development. Our 2020 season features awards for outstanding campaigns supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals, including a dedicated Grand Prix.
Eventiada IPRA GWA international jury is looking forward selecting and celebrating best-in-class campaigns from across the region. And, as usual, we continue to evaluate best work done by students, to share new generation’s vision of the world we live in and its future”.
