For its second year, PR Newswire increased the number of categories, offering brands and organizations more opportunities to submit their work and showcase their successes. After all submissions were reviewed by a
panel of judges, the broader community was invited to help select the winners from a shortlist of finalists. Public voting was open for a span of two weeks and brought in nearly 2,500 votes. Voters were encouraged to consider strategy, creativity, results and overall 'awesomeness' of the campaign.
"We were extremely impressed with the caliber of work that was submitted to our Earnies program this year. It is a testament to the fact that PR professionals and marketers are truly pushing creative boundaries and thinking outside the box to successfully connect with their audiences and drive business results," said
Meryl Serouya, manager, marketing & communications, PR Newswire. "It is also rewarding to see such high interaction and engagement from the broader community and we are thankful for everyone who voted and helped select the winners."
