Each year esteemed international public relations and communication professionals and academics are selected to review the entries and identify the shortlist across the categories. Judging is a rigorous process where a fair and balanced evaluation is ensured and where only the very best public relations and communication management programmes and academic case studies worldwide emerge as finalists.


The judges will identify ten COMM PRIX winners that will be announced prior to the next World Public Relations Forum in Toronto in 2016, with a Supreme Winner announced during the course of the WPRF. The ten winners will be invited to present their work during the Forum, allowing their peers from around the world to listen to, and question, the ‘best of the best’.


All judges sign a Confidentiality document prior to starting the judging process.

Judges will also be expected to recuse themselves in case of conflict of interest.
