PRSA-NY Opens 2019 Big Apple Awards,
‘Changing the Landscape of Communications’

New York, NY -- The New York Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA-NY), the premier organization serving communications and public relations professionals in the New York metropolitan area, opened entries today for the 2019 Big Apple Awards. Nominees can learn more and enter at

Now in its 32nd year, the Big Apple Awards is one of the most prestigious awards in the communications profession. It honors excellence in the industry and the outstanding campaigns created by many of its brightest leaders. The theme this year is “Changing the Landscape of Communications”: examining how communications is changing, and what those changes mean to practitioners. The awards are open to agencies, in-house teams, freelancers, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies, both PRSA-NY members and non-members, across the Tri-State region.

“This is a challenging time for our craft. Our work is evolving. By honoring excellence and innovation, we are helping change the communications landscape,” said Leslie Gottlieb, PRSA-NY President.

“We embrace that change and will help lead it. The 2019 Big Apple Awards will recognize the most exceptional work in our industry. The difficult work that solves problems and creates opportunities. The bold work that captures a unique kind of value for clients and colleagues. The innovative work that confronts conventional challenges in new ways.”

The Big Apple Awards has more than 100 categories. The Chapter will also recognize the accomplishments and talents of younger professionals, showcased in its annual 15 Under 35 Awards, which are nominated separately but recognized during the same event.

Introduced in 2016, the 15 Under 35 Awards are chosen by a panel of distinguished industry judges as representing the “Best of the Best” in public relations practitioners. Nominations are open to anyone 35 and under who works in communications in the New York Metro area and has at least five years of PR experience.

All winners will be honored at the Big Apple Awards Gala on June 17 at the Mandarin Oriental near Columbus Circle in Manhattan.
