2019 Awards

Save the Date!

72nd Virginia Public Relations Awards, Presented by Padilla
Thursday, May 23, 2019
The Historic John Marshall Ballrooms, Richmond, Va.

The biggest night in PR in Richmond is set for Thursday, May 23, 2019!

Many new changes are in store for the 72nd Virginia Public Relations Awards, presented by Padilla. The “PR prom” is moving to a bigger venue, complete with a VIP section and after party. The committee has also worked to level the playing field so smaller and niche groups can compete against each other. Then for the first time in a decade, the awards will have a new local celebrity host: NBC12’s Andrew Freiden.

Bring your “A” game because you don’t want to miss this year’s event!

Entries for the 2019 awards must be for work and projects (the majority of it) completed in 2018.


Early entry deadline is 11:59 p.m. on February 27, 2019.
Final entry deadline is 11:59 p.m. on March 6, 2019.
