Inspire Awards

Congratulations to the 2021 InSpire Award Winners

The 2021 InSpire Awards were announced September 14, 2021 in a virtual celebration. NCPRSA would like to congratulate everyone who won and express our appreciation for all those who entered.

Clairemont Communications took home both “Best in Show” awards as we recognized the best of the best in our field.

We know the award submissions are complex, but so worthwhile. We also recognize the difficulties the past year and a half have presented.

This year, the Greater New York PRSA Chapter judges our awards and likewise, we will judge Greater Salt Lake very soon.

Thank you to our sponsors Eckel and Vaughan, Linchpin SEO, Accesswire, PPD, Jospeh Gaitens, Brasco, and French West Vaughan.
