The Canadian Public Relations Society Manitoba Chapter is pleased to open up nominations for the eighth annual Manitoba Communicator of the Year (MCOY) award. CPRS Manitoba celebrates excellence in public communications, and developed the MCOY award in 2008 to honour individuals and organizations whose work in public relations or communications has had a significant impact. The award will be presented at a gala luncheon on May 7 at the Manitoba Club in Winnipeg.
Note that each application will be assessed for achievement of goals irrespective of budget, as budgets can and do range extensively. Nominees do not have to be professional communicators to be eligible for MCOY. However, CPRS members will automatically earn five percentage points toward the total weight of their application. And yes, you may nominate yourself!
Previous award recipients include Jason Syvixay of Downtown Winnipeg BIZ (2014); Bill Peters of St-Boniface Hospital Research Centre (2013); Scott Brown of True North Sports and Entertainment (2012); Kevin Walters of Manitoba Homecoming (2011); Clare MacKay of The Forks North Portage Partnership (2010); and Heather Plett of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (2009). Inaugural MCOY winners were Gail Asper and Kim Jasper of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (2008).
Nominations are now closed. Thank you to all applicants.
