NEW YORK—The Holmes Report is seeking submissions for a new annual ranking of public relations agencies. The new project will include a global ranking, as well as separate rankings for North America, the EMEA and Asia-Pacific region. The rankings will be published at our website, www.holmesreport.com and in the respective regional Consultancy Report Cards.
Critically—unlike other U.S. rankings—there will be no cost for inclusion, nor is any kind of “pay-for-play” arrangement expected from participating firms.
” Obviously, we believe that the industry needs an independent, inclusive ranking of the leading public relations agencies; such a ranking is essential to any intelligent analysis of industry growth and other key trends,” says Holmes Report editor. “Any attempt to limit such a ranking to firms prepared to pay would be a clear violation of the ethic that separates editorial content from advertising, and would do a grave disservice to readers, who expect an impartial ranking.”
Agencies are invited to submit information online at http://survey.holmesreport.com/survey_login_form.cfm?surveyid=92 (USERNAME: holmes; PASSWORD: ranking, or they can e-mail Celeste Picco ([email protected]) for a rankings form in Word format.
The deadline for inclusion in the ranking is April 15, 2010.
