2021 Best in Maryland Sponsorship Opportunities

Increase your visibility among Maryland’s most engaged public relations and communications professionals as an official sponsor of the “Best in Maryland Awards Gala,” our chapter’s biggest annual awards celebration scheduled for Thursday, December 9, 2021.

The Best in Maryland Awards gala is our favorite event of the year and a long-standing tradition that allows us to come together and celebrate the top-level work of our industry peers. Modeled after PRSA’s Silver and Bronze Awards, PRSA Maryland’s 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 skill, creativity and resourcefulness.

Each year, this highly anticipated celebration draws more than 100 award-winning PR and communications practitioners from across the state and spanning every industry sector, including: PR and creative agencies, corporate, education, military and government, healthcare, nonprofit, professional services, and independent practitioners. As an event sponsor, you will have access to all levels of communications pros – from students and those new to the profession, to executives and top decision makers (and the businesses and organizations they represent).
