Now in its ninth year, the Institute for Public Relations' annual Jack Felton Golden Ruler Award is the top prize recognizing excellence in public relations research. Entry deadline is August 24, 2012 at noon.
The Jack Felton Golden Ruler Award recognizes excellence in public relations research, measurement and evaluation. The award’s primary objective is to identify superb examples of research used to support public relations practice, and to publish these as case studies on the Institute for Public Relations website. The judges may also make Silver and Merit level awards.
Public relations agencies, corporations and institutions, associations, research providers and academics are all encouraged to enter this special competition. The winning research program will be announced at an Institute for Public Relations research event in November. The recipient will also be invited to present their work to the IPR Measurement Commission. In addition, the Institute publishes winning entries as case studies on its website (www.instituteforpr.org) so that professionals, educators and students can learn from the best work in research, measurement and evaluation.
