PRSA Influencer Awards

Celebrating our sixth awards program!

The California Capital Chapter (CCC) of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) is pleased to announce that you can now submit entries for the sixth annual Influence Awards. Last year, more than 100 of the Sacramento region’s most influential communicators and aspiring communications students attended the Influence Awards Gala, where 37 winners were honored across 14 categories.

To ensure the utmost objectivity, each Influence Award submission will be reviewed by a separate state chapter of PRSA. Submissions will be scored on a 100-point scale and awarded at the “Merit” level if the combined score is 80 points or higher. Submissions will be awarded at the “Influence” level if the combined score is 90 points or higher. The categories are not competitive, so many categories will have multiple winners.

Individual Awards: You’re invited to nominate outstanding local communicators for the Distinguished Young Influencer and Influencer of the Year awards. One honoree for each category will be selected via popular vote by members of the PRSA CCC Board and Influence Award Committee.

Agency/Organization Awards: Who are the agencies and organizations elevating the profession? These categories will be judged by top regional PR pros who are also PRSA CCC members. In order to participate in the judging committee, members must either be APRs and/or have more than 15 years professional experience.

New in 2019! The "CAPPIE": The PRSA Influence Awards’ newest category – the “CAPPIE” – is an ode to the legacy of the Sacramento Public Relations Association (SPRA), which merged with PRSA CCC earlier this year. This award will honor the most successful or inspiring public relations campaign that distinctly enhanced or promoted the Sacramento region in 2018.
