How would you like your work–whether a project, a campaign or a single tactic–to be featured among and then recognized by fellow local professionals? How would you like to honor someone who has made a great contribution to our profession? Well, the Best in Maryland (BIM) Awards gives you a chance to do just that by providing many opportunities for our members to be recognized for their work and their accomplishments. These awards include the Best in Maryland Awards and Professional Awards.


The Best in Maryland Awards is presented annually to public relations practitioners who, in the judgment of their peers, have successfully addressed a communications challenge with exemplary professional skill, creativity and resourcefulness. PRSA Maryland models the Best in Maryland Awards after PRSA’s Silver and Bronze.
