Entries open 2nd September and close 16th October, shortly after the ICCO Global Summit in Milan. The awards programme comprises seven main categories: Global Holding Group of the Year; Regional Network of the Year; Independent Consultancy of the Year; World’s Best PR Campaigns; Rising Star of The Year; PR Leader of the Year; and ICCO Hall of Fame 2015. Key dates: 2nd September – Entries open (early bird deadline is 29th September) 16th October – Entries close 9th November – Shortlist announced 26th November – ICCO Global Awards Ceremony at Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, London Francis Ingham MPRCA, ICCO Chief Executive, said: “PR is a global success story, with agencies in every part of the world reporting expansion. We want to recognise this success and reward those who are driving it. We intend making these awards the most rigorously judged in the world, so that winning one will truly be a globally-recognised achievement.” David Gallagher FPRCA, ICCO President said: “ICCO is committed to promoting the value of PR and it’s a privilege to chair the jury responsible for selecting the year’s most effective PR work from all over the world. The awards programme is purely judged on effectiveness and results - so your work can be as creative as you like, but unless it achieved its goals, it won’t win an ICCO Global Award.” ICCO General Manager Binta Kristin Hammerich MPRCA said: The launch of the ICCO Global Awards is a result of the excellent support from our National Association members. The ICCO success story continues, and we have this year improved our services and offerings,  allowing more collaboration among our member agencies and Associations.” All information on key dates, rules of entry, fees and category criteria can be found at http://awards.iccopr.com/ Follow @ICCOpr #ICCOGlobalAwards for updates.     About ICCO The International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO) is the voice of public relations consultancies around the world.
