MEPRA PR Awards Categories unveiled

MEPRA has today unveiled details on the categories for the 2012 Middle East PR Association Awards. 17 best practice categories are open for entries plus 7 team and individual categories – a total of 24 awards.

Following a successful inauguration in 2009, the MEPRA Awards is the region’s only independent recognition for the public relations industry. Starting in 2009 over 60 Best Practice submissions were entered in 10 categories, with 43 of them selected as finalists. In 2010, around 100 entries were received. In 2011, another 67 entries were submitted with 300 guests at the gala dinner. The MEPRA Awards are established as the PR event of the year.

For the 2012 Awards, we fully expect an even larger number of entries with new categories, and another raising of the quality level for the regional PR industry. The Awards highlight the depth and range of the industry, and recognise the achievements of a sector that is estimated to be worth USD500 million annually.

Submissions will be accepted from July 2.

The 24 categories for 2012 will be divided among the following areas: Sectors & Services (10); Technique (7); People & Agency (7) and two which are not open for submissions including the Overall Campaign of the Year and the Chairman’s award for their contribution to the PR profession in the Middle East.

If you are interested to participate, attend or sponsor, you can contact MEPRA at Stay tuned for more information!

    Hi Stephen – I really like your blog (so much I have copied your layout)…In terms of the MEPRA Awards for 2010, just an FYI – 96 entries were received. I am not sure where the 100+ figure came from but it needs to be knocked on the head! keep up the good blogs
