Aurora Awards

The 2018 Aurora Awards took place Aug. 23. You can find the results here. We look forward to seeing everyone at future events!

The Aurora Awards and Awards of Excellence encourage professional public relations performance and technique and acknowledges exemplary work in the field.

The Auroras honor comprehensive public relations campaigns that successfully communicate a message using a variety of tools, programs and components. The Awards of Excellence recognize exemplary design, creation and production of a single public relations tool.


2019 Aurora Awards

Start thinking about you’re best work from the past year. Aurora Award entries will be accepted June 17 – July 19. The bulk of the work for the entry must have taken place between April 2018 and July 2019. The awards will be presented in the fall, in conjunction with the Alaska Communicators’ Exchange.

Judging Award Entries

To ensure our chapter’s Aurora Award judges don’t have any unintentional biases, we ask another PRSA chapter in the country to judge our awards. In exchange, we do the same for them. We are looking for a volunteer to lead the judging of our sister chapter awards. The best part about this volunteer opportunity is it’s time bound. Just about every detail of the work will take place in August. Duties include tracking all of the electronic entries via master spreadsheet, assigning volunteer judges to review entries, coordinating virtual judging parties and ensuring the judging paperwork is complete per instruction of the sister chapter. Please email Heidi Embley if you are interested in helping.
