Search on for PR Champions

Kingston, October 4, 2011

The Public Relations Society of Jamaica (PRSJ) is receiving nominations from PR professionals naming business and public sector leaders who actively promote good public relations in their organisations. The nominations are to select Jamaica Public Relations Champions.

Names have already come forward for the subject areas NGO, security, sports, education, entertainment, politics, business and media.  

The search will highlight and celebrate leadership that shows its values by building healthy long term relationships with staff, customers and other stakeholders, which in the profession are called “publics”.

The nine categories for nominations are: Business (which includes the NGO and public sectors); Education, Entertainment, Health, Media, Politics, Security, Sports and Tourism.

Nominations are done online at the link

Nominations are open until October 31 and will then be reviewed by a panel of eminent public relations practitioners. Results will be announced at the PRSJ business event in November.

Over the past 30 years, the PRSJ has advocated for professional standards in the growing field of public relations. There are nearly 100 public relations specialists and officers in the public sector; some half a dozen established public relations firms and several dozen independent practitioners and consultants operating in Jamaica.
