Announcing the 2015 Bulldog Stars of PR Awards Winners

OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2015) - Bulldog Reporter is excited to announce the winners of the 2015 Bulldog Stars of PR Awards program. Thirty-eight honors have been awarded including the two Grand Prize winners, to agencies and individuals who are performing outstanding work in the public relations and communication industry.

As with all Bulldog Awards, the Stars of PR program is judged by working and award-winning journalists including a Pulitzer Prize winner. This year's judges come from a number of different media outlets including The Washington Post, USA Today and The Oregonian. The judging process is rigorous with each submission scored by at least 3 judges in the first round. Based on those scores, submissions with a score high enough, move on to the elite round where they are reviewed by another two or three judges and scored accordingly.

Scoring for agencies is based on the following criteria: firm positioning, account retention, work environment, growth and new business development, improvement to society and results achieved for their clients. Scoring for the awards recognizing individuals in the field are based on the following: leadership, integrity, breakthrough approaches, contributions to the profession, improvement to society and results achieved. Winners are awarded gold, silver or bronze awards and since they are assigned a numbered score, there may be more than one winner of each award. The Grand Prize winner is a multi-award winning submission. In this program there is a Grand Prize for both agency and individual.

All Bulldog Stars of PR Award winners receive the coveted framed award certificate. The Grand Prize Winner for the 2015 Communications Agency of the Year and the 2015 Communications Professional of the Year will be presented with a beautiful custom-made crystal bulldog award. This year the agency award goes to Klick Communications who won Gold in three different categories including Boutique Agency of the Year (Specialty Practice), Global Agency of the Year (Multinational Practice) and Small Agency of the Year - Under $1,000,000. The individual award is being given to Kate Talbot from Klick Communications who won a Bronze for Media Relations Professional of the Year, Bronze for Agency Professional of the Year and a Gold for PR Pro of the Year Under 40.
