Who Can Enter
Awards categories are open to all public relations practitioners who work in Colorado or who have completed assignments for Colorado-based clients. An individual or organization does not have to be a member of PRSA Colorado to enter. Entries must pertain to work completed in 2015.

Judging

PRSA Colorado demands the highest standards for Gold Pick judging. For 2015 entries – submitted for the 2016 program – third-party judging will be conducted by a PRSA Chapter from another market. Judges will be seasoned public relations and marketing professionals with a minimum of five years of experience. Three judges, at least one of them with APR certification, will judge each entry. Judges closely follow the guidelines outlined in the Call for Entries as well as the judging criteria for campaign and component entries. Please note that some categories may not receive awards if the judges determine the entries do not merit recognition. Judges’ decisions are final. Complete details on judging criteria are available online at www.prsacolorado.org.

Additional Awards
Grand Gold Pick Award
The annual Grand Gold Pick Award goes to the “best in show” campaign entry that receives the highest overall score of the year.

Small Practice Award
Sole practitioners, small practices and freelancers may compete for the Small Practice Award, recognizing the efforts of practitioners whose entire practice bills less than $200,000 annually. The entry must be for a campaign rather than a component. The highest score overall among small practice Gold Pick winners will receive this honor.

Nonprofit Award
This award is designed to recognize the public relations efforts of staff and executives working within a nonprofit organization. To qualify, an organization must submit documentation of 501(c)3 status. Work by a company or agency on behalf of a nonprofit is ineligible. The entry must be for a program rather than a component. The highest score overall among nonprofit Gold Pick winners will receive this honor.
