About the PR Xchange Awards Competition
The 2020 PR Xchange Awards Competition recognizes the very best promotional materials produced by libraries in the past year. The PR Xchange Awards Competition is sponsored by the Marketing and Communications Community of Practice of the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). The PR Xchange Awards Competition is overseen by the PR Xchange Committee.
This year’s competition will recognize original materials produced during the 2019 calendar year. This competition assesses your library’s individual promotional materials, not your library’s entire marketing campaign. Entries are evaluated based on content, design, and originality. They are judged by a team of experts in marketing, public relations, graphic design, and communications, who select the winner(s) in each category. For 2020, we are only accepting electronic submissions. All submissions mailed in print will be scanned and will be considered as electronic. Library web sites are ineligible. Please read the F.A.Q. for more information on the types of submissions we accept.
Submit Your Work
Please complete the online submission form for each entry by April 20, 2020. Each library may submit a maximum of 5 entries.
For electronic submissions (materials that are born digital), please upload your material on the submission form.
Winners will be notified in late May 2020. The PR Xchange Award Co-Chairs will contact all those who submitted an entry. Winning entries will be on display on the LLAMA web site. Awards will be presented to the winners at a virtual PR Xchange Awards ceremony via Zoom in late June 2020.
The PR Xchange Awards Competition is coordinated by the PR Xchange Committee, and sponsored by the Marketing and Communications Community of Practice of LLAMA.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
Best of luck to all participants!
