Drum Roll, Please! And, the 2016 MCOY Recipients are….

The Manitoba Chapter of the Canadian Public Relations Society is pleased to announce Red River College (RRC) and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) as the 2016 recipients of the Manitoba Communicator of the Year Award (MCOY). The MCOY Award is the most prestigious public relations and communications award in Manitoba and honours practitioners who lead the way in innovation, resourcefulness and creativity.

RRC won the large campaign category for its work on a communications campaign that supported a province-wide initiative to strengthen the brand of RRC, while creating stronger strategic relationships with their key publics that included: alumni, industry partners, and business. The CMHR won the small campaign category for a communications campaign that promoted its new exhibit, “The Witness Blanket,” which coincided with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report.
