PROTOS Awards 2019


Announcing the 2019 PROTOS Awards!
Excitement is revving up for the 2019 PROTOS Awards, Orange County’s premier awards program honoring the region’s top public relations professionals, programs and campaigns! Early Bird entries with special discount pricing are now being accepted. Check out last year’s winners and download the 2019 entry instructions.

Note! We’ve updated the Call for Entries to include a new category, D3 Apps, for digital apps that are substantially conceived, written and/or designed by the entrant.

Awards Gala
Winners will be announced at the PROTOS Awards Gala the evening of Thursday, September 26th at the Marconi Auto Museum, which features an impressive $30 million collection of historic, exotic and classic cars. Located in Tustin, the Marconi is a class 501(c)(3) nonprofit that donates a portion of net proceeds from hosted events to local at-risk children’s charities in Orange County.

PROTOS Awards recognition is available to agencies, companies, nonprofits, government institutions, and independent practitioners who work in Orange County or have completed campaigns for OC-based clients. Entries will be judged by two or more PR professionals from another chapter. OCPRSA members and non-members are invited to participate.
