IPRS PRISM Awards 2023


Singapore, 1 August 2023 – The Institute of Public Relations Singapore’s (IPRS) biennial PRISM Awards returns this year to celebrate the best in Public Relations and Communications across 30 open categories.

Established in 1987, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious industry awards in Singapore. PRISM which stands for “Public Relations in the Service of Mankind” recognises leading organisations and practitioners for their excellence in communications practice across all sectors – corporate, government and not-for-profit.

The IPRS PRISM Awards 2023 Presentation will be held on Wednesday, 29th November 2023 at 10am at the PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore. We are pleased to have Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications And Information, Mr Tan Kiat How join us as the Guest of Honour for this momentous event.

The awards this year shines the light on People in PR – professionals, teams and champions who have made an impact through their master of PR strategy and execution skills.

Vanessa Wan, Chair of the IPRS PRISM Awards 2023 said, "following on the heels of the highly successful PRISM Summit last year, the IPRS is pleased to launch the biennial PRISM Awards once again. This year, the Awards focus on the "People in PR." It is the PR practitioners and teams that are at the heart of our profession. They do brilliant work every day and make an extraordinary impact in their organisations, in the community, and on the profession."

She added, "It is also people who make the PRISM Awards possible - our sponsors, partners, judges and IPRS council members - and we thank them for their contributions and support."

30 Awards across the People and Campaign categories are now available for entry. The People Awards celebrate the contributions of PR practitioners in the work entrusted to them by their organisations and clients that they serve. Included in this category are the Student Awards that recognises the work of our next generation of aspiring PR practitioners from the start of their formative years.
