IPRA Board Rejects Entries from Russia for 2022 Golden World PR Awards
The International Public Relations Association, IPRA, Board says it will not accept entries from the Russian Federation for its ‘2022 Golden World Awards for Excellence in Public Relations’, PR.
The annual IPRA Golden World Awards (GWA) initiative, established in 1990, recognizes excellence in public relations practice worldwide in a variety of categories.
Recipients of the award take particular pride in the recognition granted to their entry as meeting international standards of excellence in public relations.
The Board, in a statement sent to PRNigeria through IPRA Secretariat, in the United Kingdom, said their action is consistent with national and international sanctions on Russia.
“As we said in our statement, our sympathy and our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and IPRA members based there.
“Donations are always necessary in a humanitarian crisis. IPRA members and others are urged to help. At the national level please check local news sources for where to donate or ask us and we will enquire of our global network.
“At the international level you may donate to the International Committee of the Red Cross. Additionally, we draw your attention to this webpage of the United Nations Foundation.
“Here under the title The UN’s Humanitarian Response in Ukraine: How You Can Help is information on UN efforts and a link to UN Crisis Relief,” the statement reads partly.
