Commonwealth PR Receives Two PRSA Awards
Commonwealth Public Relations has received two awards of merit from the Richmond Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) in the categories of “Media Relations” and “Brief Events and Observances.”
The firm received the awards during the 66th Virginia Public Relations Awards program, which took place May 15, 2013 at The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia and featured hundreds of companies throughout Virginia.
The first award was for the company’s work with Virginia based nTelos Wireless and a media relations campaign conducted during April 2012 to announce that it would be the first regional wireless provider on the east coast to sell the Apple iPhone.
“It was definitely a team effort deserving of recognition,” said Brian Chandler, president of Commonwealth Public Relations. “The effort included contacting hundreds of media resources throughout Virginia, as well as national reporters that follow Apple product introductions.”
The second award was in recognition of work done in partnership with Poole Communications for the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners and recognized the organization’s work to signify National Nurse Practitioners Week in Virginia.
