The deadline for the Global Communications Report, featuring in-depth research into the size, stature and state of the global PR industry, has been extended to March 4, 2016.

PR firms can enter their 2015 fee income in our annual Global PR Agency Ranking of the world's top 250 PR firms — the most authoritative study of its kind, chronicling the size and stature of the global PR industry since 2007. PR firms can submit their fee income and staffing information for the Ranking via the online form here.

Meanwhile, senior agency and in-house professionals can participate in the new Global Communications Report survey, led by USC's Center for Public Relations, which aims to create a comprehensive overview of the state of the global public relations industry. The survey is now live here.

The last day to participate is March 4, 2016.

The global research initiatives build on the Holmes Report's World PR Report work—and definitive global ranking of PR agencies—and USC’s long-running GAP (Generally Accepted Practices Study) of corporate communications planning.

The first ever Global Communications Report is being conducted by the University of Southern California’s Center for Public Relations — in conjunction with the Holmes Report, the Institute for Public Relations,  the Global Alliance for Public Relations & Communications, the International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication, the PR Council, the Worldcom PR Group, Capstone Hill Search and PRSA.

Scheduled for release in April 2016, the new Global Communications Report will provide unprecedented insight into the evolution of the global communications industry by analyzing emerging trends in talent, structure, compensation and diversity on both the client and agency sides of the business. More importantly, the Report will help those entering the PR industry better understand the skills and traits they will need to be successful in our dynamic profession.
