Presenting the winners of the 2014 Nonprofit PR Awards

Two years ago, the PR Daily Nonprofit PR Awards were created to give public-service entities a competition of their own.

We wanted to see how much creativity and inspiration awaited us (and the world) in philanthropic foundations, government agencies, professional associations, charitable organizations, academic institutions and the agencies that represent them.

This year’s program drew hundreds of entries from nonprofit and public organizations!

For the second year in a row, our entrants sent us innovative,campaigns that would impress the choosiest communication professionals. From campaigns on how to keep children in the United States from going hungry, to a partnership between the United Way and Johns Hopkins Medicine, and many more amazing stories, this program continues to impress.

We can’t wait to see what fantastic work comes our way in 2015!

We ask you to join us in congratulating the winners and honorable mentions in the 2014 Nonprofit Awards! Check out their work in this Special Edition.
