HACKENSACK, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 10, 2016) - US-based Bulldog Reporter, a renowned journal for communications professionals, has announced a partnership with Concept PR, a division of Concept Group, for the launching of its signature Bulldog Awards in India.
Bulldog Reporter is a leader in media intelligence, supplying news, analysis and high-level training content to public relations and corporate communications professionals for 35 years, with the mission of helping these practitioners achieve superior competitive performance.

The five annual awards programs have always been open to international organizations and agencies, garnering submissions from global agencies in Germany, Poland, Canada and the UK. Now, Indian communications professionals will also have an opportunity to showcase their work and talent, and compete globally.
Chris Morrison, President of MediaMiser, an affiliate of Bulldog Reporter, said, "There is so much incredible talent in India that is worthy of global recognition through Bulldog Awards. We look forward to seeing some of the great PR campaigns coming out of that country entered into our programs and witnessing new and innovative ways Indian agencies are reaching their goals in that market."
Announcing this exciting partnership Ashish Jalan, Director and CEO, Concept PR, said, "The Indian PR industry is at the cusp of a new and interesting phase where traditional and new media are equally dominant. At the same time, Indian communications professionals are breaking barriers with their extraordinary and innovative ideas. In this context, we are extremely happy to partner with Bulldog Reporter to introduce the Bulldog Awards in India and are confident that with our strong media relations, we can create a good benchmark for the media industry and the PR fraternity at large."
