Eligibility Period: All campaigns (and results), that ran in New Zealand between August 2018 to end of September 2019 will be eligible to enter.

What are The Pressies all about?

The Commercial Communications Council’s PR, Experiential and Social Media Committee (PREScom), was established in 2008 to raise awareness of the value of PR, Experiential and Social Media services for clients.

As part of its drive to promote best practice in these industries, last year PREScom launched an awards programme and event with the goal of bringing the industry and clients together to recognise and celebrate the best work in New Zealand.

The Pressies are an opportunity to showcase your achievements in PR, Experiential and Social Media throughout 2018 and 2019. The awards will highlight the most effective campaigns in their categories and fields, showing exceptional results for clients and their brands.

The Awards will be overseen and judged by a jury panel of industry experts working on leading global brands at the best agencies in the country. This is your chance to motivate your team and prove that you are the best in the industry.

• Gain new business

• Impress and showcase your clients

• Recruit amazing new talent and retain your best

• Beat your competition
