About the Awards

Each year, PRSA Richmond recognizes outstanding public relations professionals and their work at the Virginia Public Relations Awards. Over its 69-year history, the chapter’s awards program has recognized the most creative and effective communications strategies and tactics happening across Virginia.

The Commonwealth Award recognizes exceptional public relations programs or campaigns, and the Capital Award recognizes outstanding public relations tactics that were implemented as part of a larger public relations program or campaign. Awards of merit are also given in both categories.

In addition, two individuals working in the Greater Richmond metropolitan region are honored. The Thomas Jefferson Award for Excellence in Public Relations recognizes the extraordinary achievements of an individual who has spent his or her career working in the field. And the Rising Star Award honors a new practitioner with five or fewer years experience working in the public relations profession.
