Holmes Report 18 Aug 2017 // 7:37AM GMT
NEW DELHI — A consortium of organisations led by India's Promise Foundation has unveiled the Ace Business Communicator Prize for young in-house professionals, which will see two young communications professionals flown to the Holmes Report's PRovoke17 Global PR Summit in Miami later this year.
The ABC Prize was instituted to encourage India's young talent in communications. A team of two professionals will respond to a brief on social change, which will be evaluated by senior members of the ICG (Indian Communicators Group) along with Arun Sudhaman of the Holmes Report and Girish Balachandran of On Purpose Consulting.
The brief, along with further details, is available here. The winners will be publicly announced at PRAXIS 2017 and will be funded in terms of travel and tickets. The winners will have the opportunity to join PR and communications leaders from around the world at PRovoke17, courtesy of The Holmes Report. The annual Summit takes place in Miami on 24-25 October, and aims to provoke senior practitioners around the critical issues facing the profession and the companies it serves. The Summit attracts a diverse group of top-tier speakers and delegates from across the globe, including more than 60 brand side speakers in 2016 alone.
The prize, worth Rs 1.5 lakh each in kind, includes a round-trip economy flight ticket to Miami from an Indian metro and visa costs wherever applicable, supported by ICG and Reputation Today and its partners; a two-day delegate pass to PRovoke17 from The Holmes Report; and stay for two nights in Miami supported by On Purpose Consulting and the School of Communications & Reputation (SCORE).
The winners also receive opportunity to be mentored by Seema Ahuja and Shravani Dang – both senior communicators who are supporting the prize in their personal capacity. Additionally, they have access to the leadership at On Purpose Consulting. The winners also receive complimentary access to one edition of PRAXIS of their choice, although this does not include accommodation and travel. This is courtesy Chitrangada Maitra and Bodhisatya Basuthakur – two Indian origin communications professionals currently based overseas.
