The Canadian Public Relations Society, Manitoba Chapter is excited to announce that nominations are now open for the 10th Annual Manitoba Communicator of the Year (MCOY) Awards.

The Small and Large Campaign Awards are open to Manitoba practitioners in business, government, non-profit and community organizations whose efforts in the past two years (January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2016) have resulted in a greater understanding of a specific issue, successful promotion of a cause, expert management of a crisis, or the public’s acceptance of an organization’s mandate. The accompanying budget levels of each award category ensure nominees are evaluated on a level playing field against their peers.

The Crowning Achievement Award is open to a Manitoba practitioner who has made a substantial contribution to or an outstanding achievement in the field of public relations or communications over the course of their career.

Nominees do not have to be professional communicators or CPRS members to be eligible for a MCOY award.
