As part of its EuroBlog investigation into the impact of social media on public relations practice, Euprera will make three awards at its February Symposium at Ghent, in Belgium, February 2010. Each winner will receive a prize of 250€.
The awards are open to anyone connected to a European University or University College – you may be studying now, or have recently graduated.
Candidates must have maintained an online presence equivalent to at least ten weblog posts before the deadline for entries, Friday January 8, 2010, and the core topic of their content must be connected to communications/ public relations.
One award will be made to a student studying for a first degree (perhaps a BA or BSc), one will be made to a postgraduate and the third will be made at the discretion of the judges and may be the result of a nomination from a person other than the author of the blog. The awards panel is chaired by one of the world’s leading PR bloggers, Neville Hobson (www.neville-hobson.com).
The winning entrants will be invited to make a short presentation on their work at the Euprera Spring Symposium, at Arteveldehogeschool, Ghent, Belgium, February 25-27, 2010. Agreed travel and accommodation expenses will be paid for by the Award organisers (details in the rules).
