LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It's industry awards season, and the Hispanic Public Relations Association (HPRA), the leading non-profit organization founded to advance the careers of Hispanics in the field of communications, is in search for the best public relations campaigns that target the Hispanic market. In addition, nominations are being sought for leading industry professionals.

Entries for the coveted PRemio Campaign Awards are now being accepted through Friday, August 3, 2012, in eleven categories across multiple industries that highlight public relations work: Technology; Healthcare; Fashion & Beauty; Food & Beverage; Public Education; Sports; Media Event; Crisis Management; Integrated Marketing Communications; Non-Profit; and Digital Public Relations Programs (Social Media). Work must have been completed between June 1, 2011, and June 1, 2012. Award entry fees are $100 for members and $200 for non-members.  

Award entries are open to all public relations, advertising, marketing agencies, corporations, non-profit organizations and/or practitioners who practice in the United States, including Puerto Rico, and work on public relations/communications projects/campaigns that target Hispanic/Latino audiences throughout the nation.  Entries can be part of a multicultural or general market campaign, but must have a Hispanic component and will be judged only on that component by an unaffiliated panel of seasoned communications experts, from academia to industry pioneers.

In addition, HPRA is also accepting nominations to honor professionals in four industry categories: Journalist of the Year, Public Relations Professional of the Year, Young PR Professional of the Year, and Corporation of the Year. Nominations for the individual categories are currently being accepted through July 20, 2012.
