It’s awards season! If you and your library are doing some stellar marketing, consider submitting your work for an award. These awards show off the “Best Dressed” of the library PR world:
- The annual LLAMA/PRMS Best of Show Awards recognize the very best public relations materials produced by libraries in the past year. Deadline is March 16, 2012.
- The John Cotton Dana Award is the most prestigious award of the American Library Association. It honors outstanding library public relations efforts – from rebranding to community partnerships to awareness campaigns. Deadline is March 15, 2012.
- And there’s a new award on the scene – sponsored by Library Journal and NoveList/LibraryAware. Only two things are known right now – it’s worth $10,000 and full details will be announced at the LibraryAware Launch Party on March 15 at PLA. If you need a ticket to the festivities, email Nancy Dowd, Library Aware’s Project Lead, at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll be in Philly and have my ticket to the LibraryAware launch – hope to connect with some 658.8 readers while there!
