Announcing the Winners of the 2023 Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) Toronto Chapter's Achieving Communications Excellence (ACE) Awards
Last night, the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) Toronto chapter celebrated the year's top public relations and communications programs and campaigns at the annual Achieving Communications Excellence (ACE) Awards Ceremony. The awards showcased outstanding work in the field of public relations, awarding 22 gold, 48 silver and 48 bronze trophies to a variety of agencies, corporations, students and not-for-profits in the Greater Toronto Area.
"We congratulate all the winners of the 2023 ACE Awards," said Janine Allen, President, CPRS Toronto Chapter. "The ACE Awards Gala is CPRS Toronto's most exciting night of the year. We were thrilled to invite winners and their teams back to an in-person event this year after three years of virtual ceremonies. It was a pleasure to be surrounded by fellow practitioners and to celebrate those who elevate our profession in the work they do each day."
The ACE Awards highlight skill, innovation and intelligence within the public relations and communications industry. The awards recognize communications campaigns in diverse categories including, but not limited to, events, media relations, digital media, healthcare, employee engagement and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
"We would also like to acknowledge and express gratitude towards our dedicated volunteers as well as this year's sponsors, including McMaster-Syracuse MCM Program, The Canadian Press and Duet PR. Without their support, the ACE Awards would not be possible," said Allen.
