PR Xchange Awards (sponsored by the PRMS section of LLAMA)

PR Xchange Awards

The annual PR Xchange Awards recognize the very best public relations materials produced by libraries in the past year. Entries will be evaluated based on content, originality, and design by a team of experts in public relations, graphic design, communications, and marketing who select the winner(s) in each category. 

Winning entries will be on display during the PR Xchange program during the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas. Awards will be presented to the winners on that day. Award winners need not be present to win, but are encouraged to attend.

These awards are sponsored by the Library Leadership Administration and Management Association's Public Relations and Marketing Section  and are overseen by the PR XChange Committee (formerly known as Swap and Shop).
