 Awards Information for Health Care Academy Members

On November 1, 2015, the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) and the Health Care Public Relations Association of Canada (HCPRA) integrated and created the CPRS Health Care Academy. The Academy offers unique programming and resources, specifically for health care communicators. The integration between the two associations also resulted in a combined, robust awards program for all members. For those members who were a part of the HCPRA, you will notice the similarities between the CPRS National Awards and the former HCPRA Awards. CPRS has incorporated several of the HCPRA award categories into the existing CPRS Awards of Excellence categories.

The HCPRA Joan Hollobon Award has been added to the CPRS Major Awards, Canada's most coveted public relations honours for individuals and Member Societies. The deadline to submit a communications campaign or project to
the Awards of Excellence or to nominate an individual to the Major Awards is Monday, March 7, 2016 at 11.59 p.m. ET. Additional information about submission criteria for the 2016 Awards of Excellence can be found on the CPRS

There will be a short webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. ET explaining the online submission process to members. Details on this webinar will be available soon on the Health Care Academy web page. It is our hope that you will be buzzing with anticipation for the upcoming awards season, and we eagerly await the entries from Health Care Academy members!

If you have any questions about the Awards of Excellence or CPRS Major Awards, feel free to contact Elizabeth Tang, Manager, Membership and Awards at etang@cprs.ca.
