PRWeek announced the finalists for the PRWeek Awards 2013, and of course I scanned the 35 categories looking for the names of colleagues and clients who might be honored at the March 7 event to be held in New York City at the Grand Hyatt.
Kudos to our friends and colleagues at Vanguard Communications for being among the five finalists for Small PR Agency of the Year! Vanguard may be a giant among small agencies, previously named the PRWeek Agency of the Year in 2003, and a finalist for the PRWeek Nonprofit Campaign of the Year in 2006 for the firm’s “Road to the White House Kitchen” campaign on behalf of Women Chefs and Restaurateurs.
(The other finalists include Catalyst Public Relations, Jones Public Affairs, Kwittken + Company, and Rasky Baerlein Strategic Communications.)
I never knew there was a PR Education Program of the Year category, and wow! I was thrilled to see my own alma mater, American University’s School of Communication, on this list of five finalists. (The others are Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies, New York University, Syracuse University and the University of Alabama).
