Earlier this year we set out to build an awards program unlike anything we’ve done before. 

We wanted to honor the individuals, agencies and in-house teams that turn to Ragan and PR Daily for their news—the communicators we report about, write for and who continue to push the boundaries of our field. The communicators who deserve the title of ace communicator.

Our panel of judges looked for individuals, agencies and teams that overcame obstacles, did what clients and competitors thought couldn’t be done, got unheard-of results with small budgets and other similar wonders. We looked for communicators we admire and count among our top readers. 

We are proud to announce our list of the top communicators, agencies and communications teams. And let us tell you, we couldn’t be prouder!

We invite you to check out the full list of winners below, and read what made them stand out from the pack. 

Maybe next year you'll be on the list.
