Who Will Be Manitoba's Communicator of the Year?

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Dec. 10, 2007) - The Manitoba chapter of the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) is inviting nominations for its inaugural Communicator of the Year Award.

The organization established the award to honour individuals or organizations that have demonstrated excellence in public communications in business, politics, entertainment, non-profits, or the community at large. This new award is being launched as a highlight of CPRS Manitoba's 50th anniversary year.

Every organization communicates, but some do it extraordinarily well and deserve public recognition, says Adam Dooley, president of the Manitoba CPRS chapter. Today's best communicators use creativity to get messages across credibly and honestly. It's a key to survival in the 21st century for businesses, governments and non-profits alike.

Nominees, or self-nominees, can be communications professionals, CEOs, community leaders or grassroots activists. We seek to honour those who have won over the public through the power of persuasion, resulting in significant contributions to the community, said Dooley.

The first Communicator of the Year will be selected by a panel of senior CPRS Manitoba members. The winner will be introduced at a gala luncheon on Feb. 20, 2008 at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg. The event is made possible through the generosity of principal sponsor, Marketwire, with support from CNW Group, Unigraphics and Deschenes Regnier. CPRS is also partnering with the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce to promote the award. Nomination and luncheon ticket information are online at www.cprs.mb.ca. Deadline for nominations is Jan. 15, 2008.

As the leading professional association for communicators in the province, CPRS Manitoba includes members from corporations, public relations agencies, government departments and non-profits. Members represent a wide variety of fields, ranging from agriculture and health care, to financial services and manufacturing.
