The 2018 Copper Anvil Awards is open to all public relations and related industry professionals in Arizona. To be eligible, at least some part of the project must have occurred in 2017 and have been completed by May 31, 2018. Enter today!


Entries are not judged against others in the same category. Instead, all entries are judged on a 20-point scale, 5 points in each of the following categories: research, planning, execution and results. Each entry will be judged by three judges. Judges’ scores will be combined for a total of 60 possible points per entry. Entries receiving 52 or more points are eligible for a Copper Anvil; entries receiving 42 – 51 points are eligible for an Award of Merit. The judges may award multiple winners or no winners, based on the total points each entry receives. Judges reserve the right to move entries to alternative categories that they believe to be more appropriate. All judging is conducted by another PRSA chapter located in the U.S. The decision of the judges is final. PRSA Phoenix reserves the right to exclude any entry for any reason. All entries and support materials must be submitted online via Dropbox. No hardcopy entries will be accepted.
