We looked to name the A-list.

Our goal was to honor the individuals, agencies and teams in PR and marketing who, day in and day out, are THE BEST. They begin and end each day at the top. 

We hoped for the best. We received submissions that went far beyond our expectations.

If this had been a track meet, first place and fifth place would have been separated by hundredths of a second. Our judges looked for entrants who were one-half step ahead of the competition.

It was difficult, but we found the communicators who deserve the title of ‘Ace’ in the 2015 Ace Awards. 

Ragan Communications and PR Daily are excited to announce our Aces: the best individuals, agencies and in-house communications teams in PR and Marketing. Please join us in congratulating our winners!

Check out the full list of winners below, and read what made them members of our A-list.
