LAGOS chapter of the Nigerian Public Relations received 120 entries for the Lagos Public Relations Industry Gala and Awards LaPRIGA 2022.
The Institute said this is the highest number of entries since the commencement of the awards in 2016.
The chairman of the award selection committee, Chido Nwakanma said the increase in number is a demonstration of enthusiasm by members to compete for recognition.
He also attributed the increase in the number of entries to clearer criteria, and the increased number of categories for the 7 edition of the award which kicks off next week.
Some categories received more entries this year, he said.
The chairman of Lagos NIPR, Comfort Nwankwo also attributed the increase in number of entries to transparency of the award and visibility to over 400 members of the institute.
She said at this year’s award, the institute will recognize public relations practitioners, stakeholders and organisations that have through their activities contributed to the essence of the public relations profession and development.
