Every year since 2008, CPRS Manitoba has recognized and celebrated excellence in public communications with the Manitoba Communicator of the Year Award (MCOY).

The MCOY Award is CPRS Manitoba’s most prestigious public relations and communications award and honours practitioners, teams and organizations that lead the way in innovation, resourcefulness and creativity. It celebrates Manitoba businesses, government, non-profits and community organizations whose efforts within the previous year or two have resulted in greater understanding of a specific issue, successful promotion of a cause, expert management of a crisis, or public’s acceptance of an organization’s mandate.

This year, we are proud to recognize the following individuals:

Small Campaign
Matt Schaubroeck, Economic Development Winnipeg (Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party)

Large Campaign
Adam Dooley, Dooley PR (Dynacare Campaign)

Crowning Achievement
Executive Vice President, Marketing, ChangeMakers – An Argyle Company

We are thrilled to also recognize communications excellence in two additional categories as well as our latest Accredited member:

CPRS Manitoba / Red River College Student Award
Taylor Fenn

Life Member
Marlene Klassen, APR, LM

Accredited in Public Relations (APR)
Jason Small, APR

APR designation is a year-long process that acknowledges and measures an individual’s professional experience and competence in the field of public relations. It shows a person’s dedication and commitment to the high standards expected as public relations and communications professional.
