PRSK Awards for Excellence Winners

2018 PRSK Awards for Excellence Winners

The 18th edition of the Public Relations Society of Kenya (PRSK) Awards for Excellence and Gala Dinner was held on 16th November 2018 at the PrideInn Paradise Beach Resort convention Centre & Spa, Mombasa.

The awards were judged by a panel of practitioners, researchers, educationalists and media experts who follow a twofold approach of questioning thoroughly the results measured against set objectives and how well the project’s goals and objectives were met based on a four tier parameter that touches on research, planning, execution and evaluation of what was actually delivered in real terms.
