    Are you proud of you PR? Have you been responsible for a recent PR campaign that has delivered great results? If yes, why not shout about it and enter the PR Award at the Veterinary Marketing Association (VMA) flagship Annual Awards in March?

    “Whether you work in practice or industry, this is an event not to be missed! The VMA Annual Awards celebrate the previous year’s most impactful campaigns in all aspects of veterinary and animal health marketing,”, explains VMA Awards chair, Claire Edmunds.

    “As the premier veterinary marketing event of the year, the Annual Awards provides a great opportunity for marketing professionals to showcase their skill and professionalism in marketing their products and services,” she adds.

    Kindly sponsored by Veterinary Times and VN Times, the PR Award is aimed to recognise the company or veterinary practice that has delivered the most innovative PR initiative or programme between 1st January and 31st December 2017. This can be a single ‘one-off’ published piece, or a sustained campaign over a given period to support a product/initiative in the veterinary/animal health industry.

    The PR Award is judged on innovation and creative communication, says Veterinary Times editor, Paul Imrie, member of the PR Award judging panel. “A successful PR campaign should not only be highly effective, but also demonstrate creativity and originality: Great ideas, well executed to the right target audience, via optimal media,” adds Paul.
