It’s that time of year again—time to send your entries for the LLAMA/PRMS PR Xchange Best of Show competition! March 25 is the deadline.
"PR Xchange" is the new name of the long-running "Swap & Shop," the big event on the ALA Annual exhibit floor where you can grab samples of PR materials that colleagues have created in the past year. It's done by the Public Relations & Marketing section of LLAMA, the Library Leadership & Management Association part of ALA.
Download the Best of Show entry form and FAQ (includes category options and submission guidelines) from the LLAMA web site. Promotional materials produced between January and December of 2010 are eligible for this year’s contest. All categories will be judged on content, originality, design format, and effectiveness by a team of experts in public relations and marketing. Winning entries will be on display during the PR Xchange program scheduled for Sunday, June 26, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., during the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans, LA. Awards will be presented to the winners on that day.
Free samples of public relations materials from dozens of libraries will be available for attendees to “Xchange” during the program.
And you can see The M Word team there too! Come and browse, chat, and get good ideas to take home.
