What the PRmoment Award Judges are looking for

I recently caught up with Frank PR founder and PRmoment Award judge Graham Goodkind to discuss what it is that he looks for in a award winning entry.

Graham tells me that different judges will put a different emphasis on the various judging criteria, such as measurement or value for money but for Graham the most important element of a PRmoment Award winning entry is creativity. 

We have over 70 judges to judge the 28 categories and each judge is scores the campaigns within their judging category. The PRmoment Award judging process is a two stage process: with a pre-scoring stage followed by a judging panel where judges then meet up face to face to discuss, argue and decide the winning campaigns. Needless to say no judge ever judges in a category in which they have an entry.

The PRmoment awards are currently open for entries and a full list of our judges is shown here.

The judges assess each entry under the following criteria:
