Get Recognized

Thoth LogoYou do great work, and it is time to be recognized. Enter the PRSA-NCC Thoth Awards.

Named for the Egyptian god of communication, the Thoth (pronounced “tot”) Awards recognize the most outstanding, strategic public relations programs and components developed and produced in the Greater Washington, D.C. area.  Achievements are recognized in 35 categories, including 16 program categories that celebrate the very best PR campaigns and 19 component categories that highlight top accomplishments in PR tactics.

The Public Relations Society of America’s National Capital Chapter (PRSA-NCC) sponsors the local annual Thoth competition to recognize and reward outstanding achievement in public relations and to encourage continued excellence in the field. Finalists in each category will be notified by email in August following judging of the Thoth entries by senior practitioners. From these finalists, the Thoth Award and the Award of Excellence winners will be announced at the Thoth Award’s Gala that will take place in September 2014.

Whether you’re planning a full scale digital campaign or just looking to grow your reach on social media, understanding the right audience to reach and how to successfully activate that audience, is essential for social media success.

The program is intended to help nonprofits and associations achieve results with their digital campaigns. Digital Learning Day’s online campaign will be featured as a case study to show how one nonprofit used Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, the web, and video to get outstanding results without breaking the bank.
