After 183 posts by 39 students at 13 universities over 24 weeks, we’re ready to announce our shortlist for the best PR student blogger 2017. We also reveal the most prolific universities. Heather Yaxley will choose the 2017 #bestPRblogs winner by the end of May.
Our picture sums up my feelings. Lemonade: bitter sweet. This contest has been full of sweet things and I’ll be sorry to give up the routine next week. I’ll miss you! My review of the 2016-17 #bestPRblogs contest to date follows next week.
Our top student bloggers are continuing to delight and please – and they’re even competing with themselves (as well as with each other) by publishing multiple posts in a range of styles and formats each week. Our leading bloggers are more than writers: they’re publishers.
Each week, this contest demonstrates creative approaches to building connections and conversations. It’s public relations in action – and I’m very proud to highlight these examples – including two newcomers and two vlogs this week.
I never know what to expect from week to week – and have been consistently surprised by the quality and creativity of our student bloggers. This week’s subjects range from careers advice through controversial campaigns to self-help and some new faces join our regulars.
